Marymount Manhattan College Offers Exceptional Programs in the Performing, Creative, and Liberal Arts

Marymount Manhattan College (MMC) is a 4-year, co-educational, non-sectarian, private college. MMC welcomes students from the U.S. and around the world in its performing, creative, and liberal arts programs. Students in the performing arts programs are attracted to MMC because of the quality of the programs, their integration with the creative and liberal arts, and the success of MMC graduates. Students enjoy abundant internship opportunities that bridge the classroom with the stage, laboratory, courtroom, and media outlets. A highly personalized education in small classes with mentoring by exceptional faculty members distinguishes students' intellectual and creative experiences. It gives them the tools to create rewarding lives and careers, as well as to improve the lives of others. Marymount Manhattan faculty members are artists, performers, and scholars who place teaching above all else. Professors guide students in the studio, mentor them in research, help them land incredible internships, and prepare them for graduate study and careers. Students are imaginative, curious, and inspired. They are performers, artists, filmmakers, web-designers, problem solvers, progressive thinkers, and scholars who study and live in a supportive community that welcomes people in all of their varieties. MMC's campus extends from the residence hall in Midtown Manhattan to classroom buildings on the Upper East Side. A newly constructed downtown residence hall will open in fall 2015. The main campus buildings include theatres, dance studios, art galleries, science laboratories, classrooms, library, cafeteria, and a beautiful rooftop garden. The college has 2,000 undergraduate students from 43 states and 60 countries.

The MMC Experience Is Enriched by Student Activities, Campus Organizations, and Internship Opportunities

At MMC, the campus is New York City -- that means the whole college experience is a little different. Students hang out in hip neighborhoods in the East and West Village and SoHo; explore the museums along 5th Avenue and art galleries in Chelsea and on the Lower East Side; and relax in Central Park. MMC has an extensive internship program where students work at some of the most prestigious companies in the world. Students have interned at Broadway, NBC Universal, Versace, Entertainment Tonight/The Insider, HBO, DreamWorks, Sesame Workshop, Citigroup, The Clinton Foundation, Metropolitan Museum of Art, The United Nations, MTV, The New York Times, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and many other prestigious organizations. Over 40 clubs and organizations for interests in the arts, academics, cultural diversity, religion, intramural sports, community service, social events, arts, and politics.

Financial Aid Helps Make a Marymount Manhattan Education a Wise Investment

MMC invites students to investigate their financial aid options and apply for aid. If they have questions, they should please feel free to contact the Center for Student Services at 212-517-0500.

New York City's Rich Cultural, Educational, Artistic, and Entertainment Resources Complete a Balanced Education

MMC students are as diverse as are the people of New York: creative dreamers, polished performers, innovative entrepreneurs, and social activists. But they share a desire to change the world: to move an audience through performance, design a website for a not-for-profit whose mission is to improve lives, help children overcome language disorders, work with families whose homes were destroyed by a hurricane, or understand the needs of people from developing nations. At Marymount Manhattan, students can perform Shakespeare or write their own plays, sing Sondheim or compose their own songs, dance Balanchine or create their own choreography, analyze film or produce videos, photograph a flower or study its genetics, debate politics or intern in a government office, discuss ethics or work in an animal sanctuary, design marketing plans. And the magic of Marymount Manhattan is that students can do it all. What distinguishes Marymount Manhattan is integration of performing arts, creative arts, and liberal arts programs in a small, supportive college in the heart of New York City.
