The Future Designers of Marylhurst are students from the interior design program who are aiming to further bridge the gap from student life to professionalism by providing supplemental education, networking opportunities and design-project experiences. Any student enrolled in an interior design studio course is automatically a member of this organization.

While promoting cooperation with other gerontology professionals and student organizations, MGA sponsors and co-sponsors seminars, workshops and guest speakers.

Marylhurst Psychology Association
The mission and purpose of the Marylhurst Psychology Association (MPA) is to produce well-educated, ethical and socially responsible members committed to contributing to the application and science of psychology and to society in general. Our goals are to encourage public education and awareness of psychological issues across the lifespan, to encourage collaboration between institutions offering psychology programs, to sponsor or co-sponsor seminars, workshops and guest speakers, and to support community outreach activities to promote mental health.
The purpose of the Biblical Exegesis Society is to explore scripture using the historical critical method of scriptural analysis. Open to students, alumni, faculty and staff. We provide mentoring for those beginning the process of biblical exegesis. For those with more skill, we offer the opportunity to be mentors and teachers as well as the pursuit of advanced studies with peer input and guidance.
The film group at Marylhurst University aims to bring together the creative minds of students interested in the craft of film. The group's objectives are to practice the art and form of filmmaking, which includes cinematography, lighting, sound, editing, scriptwriting, music and theory. The only way to practice the craft is to start making films, so we will be working within the group and the community of Marylhurst in order to accomplish that end. Our ultimate goal is to form friendships and partnerships that last beyond graduation, as it is true that no one succeeds in anything alone. Through practice and creative collaboration we hope to start producing films of merit, no matter the different genre of the films we decide to make. For more information, email email@example.com.
