Academics

With more than 90 undergraduate academic programs; opportunities to major, minor and double-major across disciplines; and accelerated master’s degrees, Merrimack offers you a breadth of academic options to choose from.

A Strong Foundation

Merrimack’s core curriculum in liberal studies ensures that you will enter the world (and the workforce) with the knowledge, critical thinking and communication skills needed to succeed. Coupled with an emphasis on the social justice and community values of an Augustinian education, our curriculum is designed to help you think ethically and solve problems creatively — across all disciplines.

Supportive Faculty

Merrimack’s professors are more than just teachers. They also engage, mentor and connect with students, both inside and outside the classroom. They are committed to helping you grow — academically, personally and spiritually — so that you may graduate as a confident, well-prepared citizen of the world.

Knowledge Toward Wisdom

Our faculty believe that the deepest learning occurs when you are fully immersed in the experience and applying academic content to real-world problems. From re-engineering traffic flows in North Andover to designing a clean-water delivery system in Haiti, you will experience the transformative process of actively applying learning as you prepare for your future success.

Personal Attention

At Merrimack, small classes deliver big ideas. Our low faculty-student ratio means that you’ll get to know your professors — experts who provide personal attention, take an interest in your studies and help bring learning to life.
