Mount Marty College is a Catholic institution founded in the Benedictine tradition in 1936. The school is located in Yankton, South Dakota and named for Martin Marty, a missionary who once worked with Amerindians in the Dakota Territories. Originally the school operated as women's junior college, and did so for 15 years. In 1951 the school added bachelor degrees to its offerings and in 1969 the school became coeducational. The school began offering master degrees in 1983 and has since expanded to offer more programs. As part of the Benedictine tradition, the school evaluates its offerings every year, adjusting its programs and offerings to meet its original goals and community needs.

Courses are taught by qualified professionals dedicated to providing the best education possible for their students. Programs result in associate, bachelor or master degrees.
