Leading • Caring • Innovating
Mount Saint Mary College is a private liberal arts college offering academic excellence in a close, supportive college community. The Mount is located on 60 acres in Newburgh, NY in the beautiful Mid-Hudson Valley region, midway between New York City and Albany.
Mount Saint Mary College is committed to lifetime learning and personal development. We welcome students of all ages and educational backgrounds.
Undergraduate students’ college experiences at the Mount are bolstered by 50 academic programs, a robust co-operative and internship program, an exciting study abroad program, and a vibrant, diverse student life.
Adult Students – Degree Programs
Adult students returning for bachelor’s or master’s degrees can achieve their educational goals with one-on-one academic advisement and flexible evening and weekend scheduling. The Mount’s master’s degree programs in nursing, education and business enjoy stellar reputations in the region and beyond.
Many students choose the Mount’s graduate programs because of our established standards of excellence. For years, we have helped provide regional schools, healthcare facilities, and organizations with top-notch graduates for employment. Prospective employers know that our graduates have been rigorously prepared.
Adult Students – Noncredit Programs
Our programs for adult students at our Desmond Community Center include noncredit classes in technology, the arts, history, personal development, and quality of life programs. We offer a program for adults over 55 (Learning is Forever Enriching, or L.I.F.E.) with a broad range of day trips to New York City, the Berkshires, and historic homes and sites around the Hudson Valley. Cultural trips include Broadway shows, Bethel Woods, Glimmerglass Opera, the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival, the Caramoor Center, and many more. The Mount also hosts the Road Scholars program annually (formerly Elderhostel).
Grade School Students
There is no “too old or too young” for education at Mount Saint Mary College. And with Bishop Dunn Memorial Elementary School on campus, the young students remind us original commitment of the Sisters of Saint Dominic to the education of young minds in the Newburgh area.
In the summer, the Mount holds athletic camps for grade school children in basketball, swimming, and soccer. Many of our education students, both undergraduate and graduate level, work with grade school children in the community in tutoring, literacy, reading programs, science programs, and community service projects.
The Mount community and the Hudson Valley region have long enjoyed a reciprocal relationship that we look forward to continuing for many decades. We welcome all to share in this community.
