Explore the Mount

  • We have over 70 nationally recognized degree programs and course offerings—and with small class sizes and personalized attention, students benefit from a hands-on learning experience, allowing them to develop new passions, explore unfamiliar ideas, and become part of an academic community supportive enough to make success a reality.
  • Our Core Curriculum allows students to complete classes in a broad range of disciplines–literature, languages, music, history, philosophy, religion, mathematics, as well as natural and social sciences—to develop a solid foundation of knowledge, a repertoire of analytical skills, the ability to communicate clearly and effectively, and a refined capacity for moral and ethical judgment.
  • The Honors Program offers highly motivated students a unique and challenging approach to the Core Curriculum, designed to stimulate intellectual growth, creativity, and critical thinking skills. The program is interdisciplinary, with classes specifically designed to help students decipher complexity while developing academic skills.
  • A vibrant campus life is part of our mission. With more than 40 different clubs and organizations, leadership development guidance, a strong commitment to volunteer and community servicestudy abroad and international service learning opportunities, and an array of NCAA Division III varsity sports, the College offers every student a forum for growth and development.

“Coming to the Mount was an eye-opening experience that allowed me to understand diversity and how valuable it is.”

Launch Your Career

  • The College’s Oxley Integrated Advising Program helps students appreciate their strengths and interests, understand the value and range of opportunities associated with their strenghts, and strategize how to translate what they love into a meaningful career.
  • We’re just minutes from Manhattan offering you the greatest internship opportunities in the world. From ABC to the Met and ESPN to the U.N. we’ll help you secure internships at top businesses, entertainment companies, health care facilities, government agencies, and much more.
  • The Mentors Program pairs students with accomplished alumnae/i, trustees, and friends of the College to help undergraduates channel their passion and talents toward successful, fulfilling professional lives.
  • From psychology to genetics, Mount students present their original research at regional and national conferences. The Center for Undergraduate Research sponsors and supports students developing original research and scholarships across the College.
