Liberal Studies Program



In the Fall of 2010, Marymount Manhattan College (MMC) created the Liberal Studies Program (LSP)—a program designed for students who are undecided about their major.  The ultimate goal of the program is to guide students through the process of self-discovery and encourage students to consider their passions, interests, and dreams.  With the support of an academic advisor, students determine how their passions and interests align with majors and careers.

Exploration represents a core attribute of the LSP.  Students must experience a range of academic fields and disciplines in order to determine the best major for them.  As a liberal arts college, Marymount Manhattan developed a General Education curriculum that promotes such exploration.  By completing required General Education courses and elective courses, students will be introduced to potential majors.  In general, LSP students strategically plan their classes to best fit their needs for exploration and degree completion.
