Welcome to Maria College!
Making a difference in the world through the lives of our students is what we’re all about at Maria College.
Here, our mission is simple:
to serve others. In the classroom and outside it, in our hallways and throughout the community, Maria students experience the difference of an education that is not only about acquiring knowledge but about giving of oneself. With a curriculum grounded in the humanities and through its close-knit campus community, the College seeks to instill in its graduates respect for the dignity of each person and the ability to transform learned skills into caring service.
A nonprofit, independent, coeducational Albany college Maria College was founded and is sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy. With day, evening, weekend and online classes, Maria offers an RN Baccalaureate Completion Program, as well as Associate Degrees (Paralegal, Business Management, Nursing, Occupational Therapy Assistant, Liberal Arts, General Studies) and Certificate Programs (Bereavement Studies, Gerontology, Paralegal, Practical Nurse).
