Who We Are

Mount Saint Mary College: a 4-year liberal arts college located in the beautiful Hudson Valley region of New York.

Mount Saint Mary College was founded by the Sisters of Saint Dominic in 1959, but the Mount has been an academic presence here in Newburgh since 1883. The college's roots in education, and in the training of educators, go even further back to the 13th century and Saint Dominic. 

We offer our students an affordable liberal arts education with strong academic undergraduate programs and three graduate programs. Our degree programs in business, education, the health professions, media studies, and the social sciences are linked to high career growth fields. Mount students excel in their chosen fields by selecting internships and study abroad experiences that add dimension and value to their education. 

U.S. News & World Report has ranked Mount Saint Mary College among the best Regional Universities in the North.
