Academic Tradition
Marymount students are prepared to adapt to an ever-changing global marketplace thanks to signature programs such as biology, business administration, criminal justice, cybersecurity, fashion design and merchandising, interior design, nursing, physical therapy, and politics. You’ll work with students from other majors to research topics and  nd answers that have real-world implications right now.
Marymount partners with non-pro t organizations like GoBabyGo!, which adapts battery-powered toy cars to help children with mobility challenges move independently in their environment. At the Marymount GoBabyGo! Garage, the Physical Therapy students and faculty custom-adapted more than 50 cars for Northern Virginia children since the beginning of its program. Dr. Jason Craig has even taken cars to Costa Rica as part of an annual service trip.
Professor, Physical Therapy
“These cars make a huge difference in the life of
a child, and our students want to be part of that. It’s a collaborative effort with faculty. Every car is modi ed to  t each child's needs with mechanical changes such as tightening the turn radius or moving the big red 'Go' power button to an accessible place. As we teach others how to do this, many more children can be served.”
Fresh from Paris Fashion Week, Hungarian designer Tünde Hrivnák traveled to Marymount along with models from her Budapest design house to introduce MU fashion design majors to the traditional folk art of Hungarian hand embroidery, a hallmark of her couture collections.
Professor, Fashion Design and Merchandising
“It was an extraordinary real-world teaching moment which expanded our students’ horizons
as they gained an appreciation for preserving irreplaceable traditions in hand-crafted artistry and  nding ways in the world of high-end fashion to make it fresh and new in contemporary designs.”
