Academics

PMC's strong liberal arts tradition prepares students not only for their careers but also for their lives! The College combines this strong liberal arts education with our academic major programs. We emphasize the importance of learning outside as well as inside the classroom by incorporating internships, service learning projects, and community-based research. Each major program requires completion of a one-semester senior internship (16 hours per week). These internships have been most successful in helping students to secure entry-level positions in their chosen field. Some students use the internship as a platform for further post-graduate study. Furthermore, the College has ongoing relationships with institutions in the Boston area that facilitate student entry into internships and postgraduate employment and/or education.  Individualized student portfolios document skills such as effective communication, critical thinking, collaboration, citizenship, and integrated and applied learning, that will be invaluable in our students' workplaces, families, and communities.
