Who We Are

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

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. 

Mount Saint Mary College was ranked a Top-Tier Regional University (North) by U.S. News & World Report, and is on the federal President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.
