Welcome back, Griffins!

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

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

  • The Theatre Program at MMC fostered the development of strong artistic relationships with fellow writers, directors, actors, and producers who have become true collaborators and the cornerstone of my artistic community in NYC beyond graduation.

    Monet Hurst-Mendoza ’09

    Class of 2009, Major in Theatre Arts, Concentrations in Writing for the Stage and Directing
    Playwright, Director, and Theatre Producer

    Meet Monet
  • As part of my Fashion Studies minor in the Business Division, I interned with the company Vestiare Collective where I truly enjoyed a professional experience. I have learned and fine-tuned many new skills. So far, my learning includes information and formulas for excel spreadsheets, new approaches to outreach, and new research and recruiting methods.

    Eboni Rodgers ’21

    Class of 2021, BFA in Acting and a minor in Fashion Studies

    Meet Eboni
  • My Comm Arts classes prepared me for my career. I learned about content creation, critical thinking, and team collaboration. After graduation, I got an entry-level position at a syndicated daytime talk show. After eight short months, I was promoted to Executive Director.

    Amy Virga ’19

    Class of 2019, Communication Arts major

  • Through the connections fostered by the MMC and the variety of skill sets I learned within the Arts Management minor, I graduated ready to join the industry and make change. Having the knowledge of all of the elements that go into producing theatre has empowered me to create my own work and opportunities as a young Indigenous/Latina director. 

    Abigail Grubb ’18

    Class of 2018, Major in Theatre Arts with a Directing concentration, Minor in Arts Management

    Meet Abigail
  • A true testament to a school is its teachers. I was trained by teachers that I will consider mentors for the rest of my life. Plus, I got to go to college in NYC!

Everyone in the MMC community has their own way of spending the Thursday of Fall Break. As a whole, the five days of the break give us a chance to relax and recharge—whether by spending time with family and friends or perhaps by finding a quiet moment alone. When we return next week, the Intercultural Center will be hosting Indigenous/Latino lecturer, storyteller, and poet Bobby Gonzalez for a keynote presentation titled “The Tapestry of American History Through Native Eyes.” Join us on November 30 at 4pm in the IC. Link in bio to register. Thank you for helping each other stay healthy and safe this semester, and for filling the College’s spaces with the invigorating sights and sounds of MMC in action.

Stop #4 on our #featureFriday Division Chair spotlight tour! Meet Vandana Rao, Ph.D., the chair of MMC’s Division of Business. Dr. Rao is teaching three courses this semester: an NYC Seminar, which gives first-year students an up-close-and-personal look at businesses in the city; and two sections of Strategic Management, the capstone course for Business majors. In addition to her teaching duties, Dr. Rao moderates two business-related student clubs: the Investment Club and the Marymount Business Association, which helps MMC students make connections in the NYC biz world and build their network. You can visit Dr. Rao and the Division of Business on the 5th floor of Carson Hall in Room 517.

The Department of Theatre Arts is pleased to present Pippin - Book by Roger O Hirson, Music and Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz! Performances are November 11-13 at 8 pm, and November 13-14 at 2 pm. Tickets go on sale TODAY, November 4 at 11 am! Click the link in our bio to get your tickets! Special Note: ALL audience members must show proof of vaccination prior to being granted access to any ticketed event at a theatre in NYC, per the Mayor’s most recent Emergency Order. MMC requires that all individuals in the audience wear an appropriate face covering that conforms to CDC COVID-19 guidelines for masks at all times during a performance, and while on campus. Neither a negative test, nor an antibody test, satisfy the NYC vaccination requirement for theatres. Non-MMC ID cardholders must complete a health survey prior to entry.

Stop #3 on our Division Chair spotlight tour! Meet Benedetta “Biba” Sampoli Benitez, Ph.D., the chair of MMC's Division of Sciences. In addition to her teaching chemistry, biochemistry, and nutrition, she and two MMC research assistants are currently working on a collaboration with Northeastern University to understand how protein can bypass DNA lesions. “I’m so excited for the fall semester! It feels so amazing — I just love to be back with my students. There is a different vibe. There is no Zoom that will match the pulse of a classroom." You can visit Dr. Sampoli and the Division of Sciences on the 6th floor of Carson Hall in room 614. Stay tuned next week to meet the next division, their faculty leader, and where to find them. Stay tuned!
