Our Programs

Psychology teaches us to listen more closely, think more empathetically, and understand the root causes of human behavior. By studying Psychology at Marymount Manhattan College, you are entering a dynamic field that leads to a variety of relevant careers.

Why Study Psychology at MMC

Theory and practice go hand-in-hand in our psychology program. Our faculty treat you as budding scholars and help you conduct research, present at conferences, and publish articles in peer-reviewed journals.

Complement the traditional foundations of psychology with emerging areas of study like forensics, art and drama therapy, creative media, and health. People-watching may be a sport in New York, but you’ll be able to do more than that with internships in places like Sesame Street Workshop, the District Attorney’s office, the Child Mind Institute, and the New York State Psychiatric Institute.

Graduate with the skills and the experience for a wide variety of careers or to pursue advanced and professional degrees in psychology, counseling, social work, human resources, and market research.
