Founded in 1929, Marist College provides a private liberal arts education with opportunities unique to our location in New York’s Hudson River Valley, midway between New York City and Albany, the state capital. Undergraduate research, dynamic faculty, world-class technology, interdisciplinary study, and global engagement are cornerstones of the College.
The College offers more than 47 degrees in Communications and the Arts, Computer Science and Mathematics, the Liberal Arts, Management, Science, and Social and Behavioral Sciences. Some students design their own interdepartmental or college major built around their academic interests and goals. Marist students benefit from a culture that inspires them to explore a wealth of academic programs and opportunities. A global mindset is pervasive, with every student participating in a transformative educational experience.
From internships in Manhattan to Fulbright placements around the world, the breadth of academic programs, field work, community service, and networking opportunities allows students to develop lifelong interests and connections. Students from 49 states and 64 countries attend Marist, and after they graduate, they live and work all over the world.
We know transfer students want more depth and substance to their visit experience. Our visit programs are designed to give you maximum exposure to Marist students who have “been there and done that.” The Marist Transfer Student Advisory Board—Marist students who transferred here from two-year and four-year schools across the country—has literally gone through the process you’re thinking about, and they want to help you better understand life at Marist. Meet them by signing up for one of our visit programs on the transfer page of our website (marist.edu/transfer).
