Welcome to Marymount University Online, a comprehensive Catholic university that is guided by the traditions of the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary which emphasize intellectual curiosity, service to others, and a global perspective.
A Marymount education is grounded in the liberal arts, promotes career preparation, and provides opportunities for personal and professional growth. As a student‐centered learning community that values diversity and focuses on the education of the whole person, Marymount guides the intellectual, ethical, and spiritual development of each individual.
The name “Marymount” has long been associated with excellence in education. The Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary, founders of Marymount University, provide us with a heritage, spirit, and tradition that dates back to the founding of the RSHM Order in Béziers, France, in 1849 by Father Pierre Jean Antoine Gailhac and the first RSHM member, Mother St. Jean.
The learning institutions they began would evolve into a worldwide network of schools and colleges, including Marymount University. The roots of Marymount’s founding congregation reflect a commitment to education and to serving those in need – a commitment that remains vital at Marymount today.
Thank you for your interest in Marymount University Online. We look forward to getting to know you better and you becoming a part of our history.
Dr. Irma Becerra
