President’s Welcome

Dear Students,


On behalf of the entire Marymount Manhattan community, I enthusiastically welcome you to Academic Year 2020-2021, already a historic year as we work together to cope with the COVID-19 global pandemic. Courses in the Fall 2020 semester are taking place in a virtual learning environment; plans for the Spring 2021 semester have not yet been finalized as we await a resolution to the current global health crisis. But although the times are uncertain, one thing you can be sure of is that our college continues to be a vibrant, close-knit community of intellectually curious and creative students, faculty, and staff animated by the spirit of New York City.

MMC’s mission is to prepare a highly diverse student body for socially engaged lives and fulfilling careers. Central to these efforts is the particular attention given to each one of you, our students. Marymount Manhattan provides an intensely personal educational environment in which you will develop your unique path by pursuing your individual interests and passions, while exploring new ideas, new approaches, and new worlds.

In the pages of this course catalog, you will find essential information about the College's rich and varied curriculum, which I hope will inspire you to explore both widely and deeply. Included is an overview of the programs of study, degree requirements, policies and procedures, and other information that will help you make the most of your Marymount Manhattan experience.

Beyond these pages, you will find talented and dedicated faculty members who are eager to help you achieve your educational and professional goals. You will find caring staff members who will do their best to ensure the quality of your undergraduate experience and give you the help and guidance you need to succeed. You will discover academic programs that will transform your ways of thinking and expand your knowledge. You will meet friends and colleagues in our diverse community who will join you on this exciting journey.

As you embark on a new academic year, I encourage you to take advantage of the extraordinary opportunities that Marymount Manhattan offers. This is a college that provides a liberal arts education unlike any other, with stellar academic programs delivered by an exceptionally talented and committed faculty and enriched by the resources of one of the greatest cities in the world.
