About Us

Merrimack College is a selective, independent college in the Catholic, Augustinian tradition whose mission is to enlighten minds, engage hearts and empower lives.

The College offers undergraduate degrees in the liberal arts, business, science and engineering, and education programs; it also offers master’s programs in accounting, education, engineering and management; and a range of certificate, licensure and degree completion programs.

Throughout the curriculum, students can take advantage of hands-on opportunities including cooperative education and internships, research with faculty, study abroad and service learning.  And, because our curriculum emphasizes the liberal arts, graduates are prepared to be imaginative, analytical, aware of trends and historical perspectives, clear thinking, and adaptable to changes in their career.
