Mercyhurst University

At Mercyhurst University, we believe that a liberal arts education is about studying what you love - and then applying what you learn. While Mercyhurst maintains a vibrant and challenging coeducational campus, the university also remains true to its Mercy Mission as a private, Catholic, liberal arts college. Mercyhurst offers 60+ undergraduate majors, including world-renowned programs in intelligence studies, data science, archaeology/anthropology, forensic sciences and public health. Our students have access to more than 165 faculty members eager to share years of invaluable training and field experience. In many cases, our faculty work side-by-side with students on exciting research projects. Even as freshmen, students take advantage of unique opportunities to collaborate with notable faculty who act as mentors and advocates on the path to knowledge, growth and success. What unites students is their ability to ask faculty questions, to spark discussion, to engage in critical and creative thinking, to research complex issues and solve challenging problems, and to write effectively and speak persuasively -- essential skills that employers prize in today's idea- and service-driven economy. Upon completion of their degrees, 95 percent of graduates are employed or enrolled in graduate studies within six months of commencement.
