Choose the Mount

The College of Mount Saint Vincent is a nationally recognized independent, liberal arts college. Committed to the Catholic tradition and ecumenism, the Mount offers more than 40 undergraduate programs, including a full array of majors and minors and professional preparation in accounting, business, communication, education, and nursing.

Our faculty are teachers first. Known for their superb academic credentials and award-winning research, they engage students through a rigorous core curriculum, the personal attention afforded by a 13:1 student faculty ratio, small classes (average 20), freshman seminars, uncommonly rich opportunities for student/faculty research, extraordinary choices for international study, the internships of New York City, and our unique Oxley Career Education Program.

Through this exceptional academic program, the Mount prepares students for a career, not just a job. All fields of study emphasize analytical skills, critical thinking, ethical responsibility, and clear persuasive communication. These are the essentials for success in every profession and the most lasting way to invest in your future. That is why our students and faculty take such great pride in their work together.

The Mount is a very personal place in a very big city. Our wooded, 70-acre waterfront campus is just 12 miles from midtown Manhattan. Our location affords unparalleled access to the educational, cultural, and career resources of New York City and its region. For us, the city is a classroom.
