Our connections to industry and alumni experts will help you connect with like-minded individuals who can offer you advice through our mentor program.  

Marymount’s proximity to Washington, D.C., gives students many possibilities when fulfilling the program’s required internship for academic credit. Potential internship sites include renowned public and private research institutions, leading health care agencies and hospitals, and high-profile federal agencies such as Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

I am honored to be the Founding Director of a School that is grounded in excellence for education, research, and service. Please explore our website to learn more about our faculty, students, and staff, and our many initiatives that are shaping the future of science and mathematics locally as well as globally.
