Molloy College

Molloy College, an independent Catholic college located in Rockville Centre, offers students a rich and multidimensional education experience. The Long Island school encourages critical thinking and creative exploration in a personal community setting. Molloy combines the strengths of academic excellence and leadership with personal, compassionate mentoring to bring out the best in every student.

For more than 50 years, Molloy College has evolved to become a dynamic learning institution with outstanding faculty, advanced technology, and a wide range of academic programs. In addition, Molloy has expanded its reach, offering graduate level courses at its Suffolk Center in East Farmingdale, along with a number of on-site opportunities at area hospitals and school districts.

Molloy College students possess the confidence needed to live and work in this fast-paced, ever-changing world. The college has expanded its global learning program, where students travel from Rockville Centre and study abroad in Belgium, India, Italy, France, Spain, Thailand, and Australia. By traveling from Long Island and immersing themselves in cultures in other parts of the world, students gain knowledge while learning acceptance and understanding.


Closer to home, Molloy College students make a difference in Rockville Centre as well as other local communities. For example, as part of Molloy’s tradition of service, students become involved in a number of projects in the college’s New York community that include BoxTown, a program to raise social consciousness about the issue of homelessness.

Sports and academics go hand-in-hand at Molloy College, where students are known for both their athletic and scholastic success. The Long Island school has a winning tradition in a number of athletic programs and recently won conference championships in women’s basketball and men’s soccer. MolloyCollege athletes compete in the East Coast Conference, NCAA Division II.

Campus life in Rockville Centre is alive and vibrant, with more than 40 student clubs and honor societies. Whether it’s writing for a campus publication or serving as a student government representative, Molloy has something for each and every student.

In recent years, Molloy College has become a focal point for civic discourse with key community forums. Top regional, national, and international leaders (including Secretary of State Gen. Colin Powell and Newsweek editor Fareed Zakaria) have come to Rockville Centre to visit the college in order to address critical and timely issues.

The college recently launched two new initiatives to further enhance students’ experience. The Sustainability Institute at Molloy College is Long Island’s first-ever venture combining environmental advocacy and sustainability education within an academic institution. Molloy also recently kicked off its new Irish Studies Institute with a presentation from the Honorable Bertie Ahern, the former prime minister of Ireland.

Through Molloy College’s diversity of programs, personal attention from faculty, and commitment to improving both Long Island and the world, students are prepared to “Go Ahead” and start something and make a difference.
