Marymount Manhattan College
Marymount Manhattan College is a four-year, co-educational, non-sectarian, independent liberal arts college located in the highly desirable Upper East Side of Manhattan.
Marymount Manhattan is situated in New York City and is a subway ride away from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, the Museum of Modern Art and Lincoln Center. Students enjoy easy access to the theatre district, Madison Square Garden, Soho and the Village. With countless restaurants, concerts, and street and film festivals, the options for activities are endless.
MMC consists of two buildings on 71st Street between Second and Third Avenues, filled with study lounges, science labs, classrooms, studios, galleries, computer labs, club meeting rooms and performance venues.
Marymount Manhattan College was founded in 1936 by the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary as a two-year women's college and a New York City extension of Marymount College, Tarrytown in Tarrytown, New York. In 1948, the College moved to its present location on 71st Street and became a four-year bachelor degree-granting college; the first class graduated from MMC in 1950. In 1961, MMC was granted an absolute charter as an independent four-year college by the Regents of the University of the State of New York.
Faithful to the vision of its founders, Marymount Manhattan has a long history of reaching out to diverse populations in need of higher education. Originally the College served women, many of whom were commuting students of traditional college age. Over the years, Marymount Manhattan's mission as an urban, independent, coeducational nonsectarian liberal arts college has expanded to include a greater variety of students, including men, nontraditional students, and students from a variety of ethnic and geographic backgrounds.
Marymount Manhattan College is an urban, independent, liberal arts college. The mission of the college is to educate a socially and economically diverse population by fostering intellectual achievement and personal growth and by providing opportunities for career development. Inherent in this mission is the intent to develop an awareness of social, political, cultural and ethical issues, in the belief that this awareness will lead to concern for, participation in, and improvement of society. To accomplish this mission, the College offers a strong program in the arts and sciences for students of all ages, as well as substantial pre-professional preparation. Central to these efforts is the particular attention given to the individual student. Marymount Manhattan College seeks to be a resource and learning center for the metropolitan community.
MMC currently enrolls about 1,895 students. The student/faculty ratio is 11:1 - small classes are taught only by faculty members, not graduate assistants. The average class size is 15 students. Students can choose from 17 majors and 35 minors.
