“The professors I had at Marist gave me new-found confidence as a student,
researcher, and practitioner. I was able to build close relationships with my professors, and I have continued to look to them for advice on my professional development after graduation.”

Message from the Dean
Our students enter professions that are the backbone of an enlightened and productive society. We are counselors, researchers, teachers, social workers, law enforcement workers and psychologists. We nurture society, we inform public policy, we discover cures in labs, we protect, and we lead. Our students are engaged in activism and service in our communities as well as dialogue and research with our faculty to create solutions that improve the human condition.
