Maryville College is ideally located between the Great Smoky Mountains National
Park and Knoxville, the State’s third largest city. Additionally, the 265-acre campus
includes 140 acres of College Woods that serve as a natural classroom and
recreational haven. Founded in 1819, Maryville is one of the oldest institutions of
higher learning in the nation and is a Presbyterian (USA) church-related college,
welcoming students of all faiths. The College has been ranked by U.S. News & World
Report, the Princeton Review, Washington Monthly and College Factual. It also is
recognized as a College of Distinction and a “Top Adventure School” by Blue Ridge
Outdoors magazine. Known for offering its students a rigorous and highly personal
experience, Maryville College is one of the nation’s few colleges requiring seniors
to complete a comprehensive exam in their major and conduct an extensive
Senior Thesis. The College also is known for successfully joining the liberal arts and
professional preparation. The new “Maryville College Works” is a carefully-designed,
integrated program that builds bridges between the classroom and the workplace
by requiring all students to complete a significant practical experience before
graduation. Through advising and activities such as internships, study abroad,
and service learning, students understand how applicable and marketable their
disciplinary and core skills are in the workforce.
