Welcome back, Griffins!

We’ve updated our Health and Safety Guidelines for the Fall 2021 semester. Visit MMC Onward to get the details.

You imagine your own path for learning. You see connections where others see boundaries. Different academic disciplines—dance and biology, art and politics—form a single thread in your creative and curious mind. At MMC, you will harness these diverse learning opportunities to create your own academic experience. Blaze your way to knowledge.

MMC Honors

You’re creative, curious, and smart. We’re thrilled to nurture your talents. Our College Honors Program offers a specialized curriculum for outstanding academic achievement. We also host chapters for a number of national honor societies, and hold an annual Honors Day Colloquium to showcase students’ academic achievements.

Pre-Professional and Post-Bac Programs

Have your sights set on a career in medicine or law? As an undergrad, you can pursue courses that will prepare you for law, medical school, or other health-related professions. If you’re already a college grad, you can fulfill your science prerequisites for medical, dental, speech-language pathology, and other healthcare- and science-related professional programs.

Study Abroad

While New York City can spoil you with its international cachet, there are other great world cities to immerse yourself in. MMC offers a number of study abroad programs that transport you beyond the five boroughs of NYC. Does Paris entice you? What about London? Perhaps Greece or Italy? Choose your location and open yourself to cultural discovery and global perspectives.

Find Your Edge

  • Not only did I spend time learning about the world and its history, but I formed a valuable global view that I have carried with me in my professional career.

    Alexis Garcia ’18

    Class of 2018, Double major in International Studies and Politics and Human Rights

  • I enjoyed being in NYC while I studied at MMC.

    Daniel Langan ’12

    Class of 2012, B.S. Business Management with a concentration in Entrepreneurship 

    Meet Daniel
  • The Behavioral Neuroscience program at MMC encompasses my passion for biology, chemistry, and psychology. Dr. Hunter-Ramgnoli has provided me with the education, guidance, and hands-on training I needed to not only do well in school, but to acquire a position as a Research Associate at the Nestler Lab at The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai after graduation.

    Martine Faustin ’19

    Class of 2019, Major in Behavioral Neuroscience

    Meet Martine
  • I interned for Us Weekly, Christie’s Auction House, Times Square Alliance, and Seventeen Magazine. I’ve used my design skills in every position I’ve had. I’m glad I get to utilize my design passion and that I’ve been able to evolve with the ever-changing digital landscape.

    Lacey Budd ’11

    Class of 2011, Graphic Design Concentration

  • The History major helped me tie together my cross-departmental interest to focus on Entertainment History. Classes in music, theatre, and cultural history provided that quintessential well-rounded liberal arts education. To be a well-educated member of society, understanding the past is crucial towards shaping the future—this is why I believe in a BA in History.

Today is October 1, so you know what that means. It’s officially spooky season! Looks like MMC’s biology lab has already started decorating for Halloween, or was that always there? 🎃🍁🍂🔬🧪

Dr. Schaefer teaches media studies classes from critical-cultural and historical perspectives and is currently working on a book project about the use of catalog music in streaming services. • "I am very excited about being in person in my teaching and thrilled to have the spark in the classroom that comes from having a classroom full of students. That’s what I’m really excited about and it’s been great so far!” • You can visit the Division of Communication and Media Arts on the 5th floor of Nugent Hall right across from the elevators in room 560.

Have you seen these beautiful new sculptures on Main Campus? Created by visiting artist Yvonne Shortt, the two pieces were installed at MMC to uplift students’ personal narratives through public art. If you haven’t had the chance to, visit the Lowerre Family Terrace to see “Warrior Afro Pick,” created to promote self-reflection by the observer. And as you walk towards Second Avenue, take a look at the front of the Townhouse at 255 East 71st Street to view “Accessory Afro Pick,” which explores Shortt’s personal narrative as a woman of color. Throughout her time with MMC, Yvonne will engage the community in conversation over the role of visiting artist as a collaborative partner creating conduits to lift student voices. Read more about Yvonne, the inspiration for her artwork, and her role at MMC at the link in our bio!

WHAT A WEEK! Our 2021 Welcome Week included residence hall move-in, important information and social events on campus, excursions all across this crazy city, and an official Convocation Ceremony for new students! From a sunset boat cruise, exploring Manhattan’s newest island, and walking across the Brooklyn Bridge (all during a heat wave 🥵), none of this could have been possible without MMC’s Student Life team, Residence Hall staff and RAs, our incredible facilities team, the PEER LEADERS, and so many more. Thank you. We can’t wait for Monday!

Not even a hurricane can stop the Class of 2025! Despite the rain, we moved hundreds of new Griffins into our Cooper Square and 55th Street residence halls this weekend. A huge thank you to our invaluable Facilities team and the incredible group of RAs, Peer Leaders, and Griffin Guides who helped our Residence Life staff move our new group of students in. Not an easy lift! We can’t wait to see some of your newly decorated rooms — tag us in your photos or DM us to be featured on our story 🤩 #GoGriffins #MarymountManhattan
