Welcome to Maryville College

Perfectly situated between the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the city of Knoxville, Maryville College provides a comprehensive and time-tested curriculum that enables students to study everything, so that they are prepared for anything — to address any problem, to engage with any audience and, thanks to a commitment to integrate career readiness throughout their four years, to launch successful careers right away. Simply put, our goal is the same today as it was at our founding more than 200 years ago: produce graduates who possess a sense of purpose, to be giving citizens and gifted leaders, who do good on the largest possible scale.

Total enrollment for the Fall 2019 semester was 1,148.
