Find Your Edge

  • I came to MMC in pursuit of becoming a dancer. I was interested in how I could use the body to express my thoughts and emotions and communicate ideas. I ended up with Studio Art as my major—falling in love with the body in relation to art history, visual arts, and painting. My studies abroad in Italy and at MMC helped to solidify my choice to be an artist in New York City.

    Rebecca Palko ’17

    Class of 2017, Major in Art with a Studio Art concentration

  • CTEM and its 1-on-1 approach has given me an unmatched creative foundation to develop my skills as an aspiring screenwriter and filmmaker. The faculty is astounding and wants nothing more than to see their students succeed academically, artistically, and professionally. This program has given me insurmountable confidence in my abilities (and an irreplaceable sense of passion) that I will forever take with me into the professional world of entertainment!

    Shelbi Cornelison ’22

    Class of 2022, Film and Media Studies major

  • As I continued to grow and learn throughout my internship, I was able to connect concepts that I have learned in marketing and fashion courses I have taken for the fashion marketing concentration: Fashion Consumer Behavior and the Social Psychology of Dress, and Strategic Management.

    Kara Connolly ’19

    Class of 2019, B.A. in Business with a concentration in Fashion Marketing

  • MMC’s Business Management minor provided me with flexibility with the curriculum. After learning the basics of business, I was able to invest my time with the aspects of business that interested me, which was primarily accounting and financing. This insight and knowledge not only inspires me to start my own business, but gives me the power to do so. 

    William Bryan ’21

    Class of 2021, Major in Theatre Arts with a Concentration in Costume Design and a minor in Business Management

  • My experience at MMC challenged me not only to study the basic sciences in a typical linear sequence, but rather to integrate coursework in sociology, language, and philosophy into the Biology major courses.
