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 70 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 (with an average of 20 students), 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.

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.

Our location affords unparalleled access to New York City and the numerous educational, cultural, and career resources available. Our inclusive community and proximity to Manhattan are all part of a Mount education, an experience that changes the way you think and helps you realize what matters most to you.

We can’t wait to meet you and welcome you to the College of Mount Saint Vincent—your home for the next four years.
