Top Arts Programs with a Focus on Sustainability
Within the School of Arts & Design, students choose from programs in Fine Art and Graphic Design, Art Therapy, Fashion and Merchandise Management, and Interior Design, all of which focus heavily on teaching students how to improve their communities. Interior design students, for example, work on real-life projects for local nonprofits while fashion students learn about the global impact of how and where garments are made. Students spend a significant portion of their studies in internships related to their desired careers, providing hands-on experience (a great résumé-builder).
Art Therapy: A Distinctive Way to Give Back
Mount Mary offers one of the only Art Therapy programs in the country, where students learn how to help others by using the creative-thinking process to improve a patient’s physical, emotional, and mental well-being.
Merit-based scholarships of up to $15,000 per year are available based on GPA and academic performance prior to enrolling at Mount Mary. High achieving international first-year students with a passion for community involvement may apply for the Caroline Scholars Program which covers full tuition and room and board.

I also enjoy participating in the International Club, Women’s Leadership Institute, and Honors program.”
For students seeking a safe, family-like environment and academic excellence, Mount Mary University, is a great choice.
