Founded in 1905 and located on the banks of the historic Hudson River, Marist College is a comprehensive, independent institution grounded in the liberal arts. Marist educates more than 5,000 traditional-age undergraduate students and 1,400 adult and graduate students in 47 undergraduate majors and numerous graduate programs.

From U.S. News & World Report to Barron’s to Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, the College is recognized for both educational excellence and exceptional value. Most impressive has been the school's inclusion in The Princeton Review’s book Colleges That Create Futures: 50 Schools That Launch Careers By Going Beyond the Classroom, which lists Marist alongside such schools as Princeton, MIT, Stanford, Duke, the University of Pennsylvania, and Notre Dame. 

Marist College demonstrates excellence in education through an emphasis on quality teaching in a small classroom setting. The College's dedicated faculty really get to know their students, leading to mentorship, joint research opportunities, and intellectual guidance. Marist College believes in the value of a liberal arts education and the idea that all students–no matter what their primary field of study–should receive a broad education across many disciplines, learn to think logically and creatively, and be able to communicate effectively. Excellence in education also includes a forward-looking educational philosophy that incorporates the use of technology and meaningful learning opportunities outside the classroom–everything from internships to study abroad to leadership development programs.
