College Profile

Marymount Manhattan College (MMC) is an urban, independent, coeducational, undergraduate liberal arts college. MMC has designed its programs to enable students to meet the challenges of contemporary society. MMC is committed to the belief that a liberal arts education provides students with the ability and the flexibility to manage change and with broad understanding and the communication and problem-solving skills that are essential for success in any career and in life.

To accomplish its goals, the College offers a liberal arts education, integrated with pre-professional training opportunities and individualized attention. The curricula are organized into five divisions: humanities, fine and performing arts, sciences, social sciences, and business management and accounting. Also offered are special-interest sequences that complement the student’s major and minor, with added concentration in such areas as art history, creative writing, finance and investments, international business, marketing, photography, pre-dentistry, pre-law, pre-medicine, pre-veterinary, social work, and many others.

The College’s small size, typically no more than 18 students per class, provides students with personal attention and an opportunity to work closely with the faculty. Ninety percent of our faculty hold a Ph.D. or terminal degree in their field and the student to faculty ration is 11:1.

MMC is centrally located on Manhattan’s beautiful Upper East Side. Within walking distance of the campus are the Frick, Metropolitan, Whitney, and Guggenheim museums; the Asian Society, French Institute, and National Audubon Society; Central Park; New York Hospital and Sloan-Kettering Research Center; and public libraries. All forms of public transportation are easily accessible. Within minutes of the College are shops, restaurants, and movie theaters. This location gives students the opportunity to take advantage of New York City’s rich culture and to explore a variety of neighborhoods.
