A Results-Oriented Education
We believe higher education elevates students' knowledge both academically and practically. That's why we offer 50+ undergraduate areas of study and 70+ graduate programs, degrees, and certificates reinforced by internships, career counseling, mentors, and networking opportunities. We call it outcomes-based learning.
Our 100-acre, picturesque campus is located in a safe and scenic community in Westchester County, just 30 minutes away from Manhattan, which provides our students with many cultural experiences, and internship opportunities.
Manhattanville students completed more than 30,000 hours of service last year in their community and abroad. There are more than 60 outlets for community service available on campus and more than 600 Valiants give their time to service projects.
45 undergraduate majors and minors. 75 graduate degrees and advanced certificates. executive and continuing education. A faculty of 90% with PhDs or the highest degree in their field.
Inspired by their environment
Grounds designed by renowned landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted and the castle design of Reid Hall provide an inviting backdrop for learning. Inspired by their environment, Valiants form a close-knit, active community with shared values and a drive to achieve.
Since Manhattanville’s inception as a Catholic academy in 1841, we have believed education is most transformative when tied to acts of service and the will to lead ethically and responsibly. That belief was evident when President Grace Cowardin Dammann, RSCJ, encouraged students to work with underprivileged children during the Great Depression and World War II and is still visible today with our students donating more than 32,000 hours to community service and social justice projects. Still committed to the values that shaped its founders’ belief in the liberal arts, the College became coeducational in 1971 and independent of the Society of the Sacred Heart after 1971.
As much as we enjoy the world beyond Manhattanville's grounds—surrounding Westchester County, nearby New York City—we're just as happy with the community we've built here. Manhattanville's historic buildings and stately grounds provide a picturesque setting for learning, while students from more than 30 states and 50 countries reflect the changing demographics of our workplaces and networks, well preparing graduates for their future careers and communities.
