As a leading liberal arts university -- and a women’s institution at the traditional undergraduate level -- Mount Saint Mary’s provides year-round, flexible, online and traditional programs at the undergraduate and graduate level. All of our students -- whether undergrad, grad, busy adults or straight from high school -- share and contribute to our spirit of community, support, empowerment and leadership development.
