After MMC

Politics and Human Rights is building on the success of the Social Science departments at Marymount Manhattan College. Students who have studied the Social Sciences with us have gone on to have diverse and fulfilling careers and often help change their communities for the better.

 Below, you’ll hear from some of our alums in our Social Science community. These students, all of whom have studied with Politics and Human Rights faculty, are pursuing great opportunities in graduate and law school and/or serving their communities in government, the private sector, counseling, and not-for-profit and community planning organizations.

    The experiences I had at MMC will stay with me forever and I cannot wait to implement everything I learned at MMC into my studies at Columbia.

    MMC’s professors provided me with unconditional motivation and support, the department gave me opportunities that many do not have access to in grad school let alone undergrad, and the variety of classes in the field helped me to form my career path and goals.
