Introduction

College of Mount St. Vincent

Founded by the Sisters of Charity of New York, the College of Mount Saint Vincent is an academically excellent, authentically inclusive, Catholic and ecumenical liberal arts college. The College combines a strong core curriculum with a full array of majors in the liberal arts and, within the tradition of liberal education, selected professional fields of study.

At Mount Saint Vincent, a student’s education extends beyond knowledge, skills, and preparation for work. We seek the development of the whole person. In the spirit of Vincent de Paul and Elizabeth Ann Seton, we foster an understanding of our common humanity, a commitment to human dignity, and a full appreciation of our obligations to each other.

Through its School of Professional and Continuing Studies, the College extends its primary undergraduate mission by offering high quality graduate studies in business, education and nursing and an array of undergraduate and certificate programs serving non-traditional students.

A Place Apart—and Yet Connected


On a 70-acre campus of rolling lawns and wooded hills overlooking the Hudson River, just 12 miles from midtown Manhattan, the College of Mount Saint Vincent offers excellent academic and professional programs to more than 1,800 undergraduate and graduate students. It’s a special place—a supportive academic community enhanced by the excitement of Manhattan’s world-class businesses and cultural institutions.

M.S. in Urban and Multicultural Education

The Master of Science in Urban and Multicultural Education is a values-centered program reflecting the belief that learning and culture are inseparable, as are relationships among learner, teacher, environment, and purpose for learning. Educators need to understand the cultures of all children, adolescents, and families through conscientious study and personal interaction. Accordingly, educators must have the appropriate knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary to teach effectively in all school systems, especially in metropolitan area systems where the populations are more culturally diverse.

Consistent with the College mission, the Graduate Program is based on a belief in commitment to service, especially to diverse populations. All young learners have the right to an education appropriate to their individual needs and an education that acknowledges their culture, race, socioeconomic background, and the language of their home....

Master of Science in TESOL     The Master of Science Program in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages at the College of Mount Saint Vincent is designed to prepare prospective teachers of English language learners from Pre-Kindergarten through grade 12 who wish to work in a variety of public, private, suburban, and rural settings. Candidates holding initial certification in a discipline other than TESOL fulfill the academic requirements for professional certification in that area while simultaneously fulfilling the academic requirements for initial certification in TESOL.   The curriculum provides a strong foundation in both first and second language acquisition with discrete focus on the acquisition of English in particular. By addressing the linguistic, cognitive, psychological, cultural and sociological realities of English language learners, future elementary, middle and high school teachers of English as a second language are professionally empowered to educate a diverse group of learners, thereby adding a very necessary certification to those already offered at the College. Students educated in the M.S. in TESOL Program will become sensitized to language acquisition issues throughout their course of study, identifying those issues as they relate to their respective personal language learning experiences and to those of their classmates and prospective students. The faculty aspires that students acquire an understanding of the relationship between language, culture and learning so as to develop the skills to effectively serve English language learners in a variety of settings.     Program Outcomes ...
