Curry College

The Curry College mission is to educate and graduate students prepared to engage in successful careers and active citizenship with a global perspective. We are an inclusive community of diverse learners and educators, committed to continuing our legacy of developing effective communicators with reflective and critical thinking skills. We mentor and empower our students, building meaningful relationships that inspire them to achieve their ambitions. Curry College provides rigorous and relevant academic programs to undergraduate and graduate students, and our rich blend of liberal arts and career-directed programs is enhanced by practical field experiences and co-curricular activities. Learning at Curry extends beyond the classroom and is embedded in all that we do. Highly participatory learning experiences occur across and beyond the campus - in the classrooms and in the residence halls, on the playing fields, through community service and in internship placements. Academic and student affairs professionals work in partnership with a passionate commitment to the comprehensive development of our students. Curry students benefit from small classes sizes that allow close relationships with faculty members and classmates. The First-Year Learning Communities program at Curry College allows students to collaborate with faculty and other first-year students both in and out of the classroom as they investigate a theme and complete required courses. Some first-year learning communities are living/learning communities which allow students to reside with classmates who share similar academic goals and interests. Four distinct communities include honors, communication scholars, health professions, and science scholars. One of Curry Colleges largest and most diverse programs is our communication program which provides a solid foundation in theory and analysis combined with hands-on courses where students learn the craft of their chosen concentration. Curry has received great recognition for our communication program. Students learn and put their skills to use at our award-winning radio station WMLN-FM 91.5, and in the state-of-the-art Hirsh Communication Center and award-winning television station CC8. Our television program was one of the first in the country to offer HDTV instruction and the first in the Northeast to embed 3D instruction into the curriculum. TV and film students can garner real-word experience through the Semester in Los Angeles, New York City, and Washington D.C. programs which allows students to complete internships with leading industry employers. Curry students follow artistic pursuits through on-campus theatre, dance, and music programs. Curry Colleges location in the Boston metropolitan area allows hands-on learning for our nursing students at some of the best medical facilities in the world. Curry nursing students gain experience in a wide range of placements, completing five semesters of required clinical work including pediatrics, maternity and mental health rotations. Curry nursing clinical placements begin in the sophomore year, differentiated from many nursing programs which begin in the junior year. The internationally recognized Program for Advancement of Learning (PAL) provides academically focused assistance to bright, college-able students with specific language-based learning disabilities, executive function disorders, and/or AD/HD. Since its inception, PAL has focused on providing comprehensive, strength-based support to college students with learning differences in a proactive environment. PAL has been widely recognized as the country's first college program of its kind and for its leadership role over the years.
