Driven by our Augustinian Catholic mission, Merrimack is where academic excellence meets a community filled with spirit and energy. Together, we believe in pushing boundaries, embracing innovation and making a difference within our communities.
Our academic experience bridges the gap between theory and the real-world for meaningful learning that prepares our students for personal and professional success. Merrimack is where students and faculty come together creating a unique environment where ideas and collaborative endeavors are encouraged, meaningful connections are made and personal growth is a priority.
Academic excellence prepares you for the career you want.

Our programs offer a rigorous and enriching experience designed to meet real-world market demand.
Outcomes that speak for themselves.
A degree is only as valuable as where it can take you. With a 96% career outcomes rate and 85% of students participating in an internship or co-op, you can feel good about your decision to pursue a degree at Merrimack. And, a Georgetown University study ranked salaries of Merrimack graduates in the top 2%.
Scientific research with faculty.
As laid out in The Agenda for the Future, Merrimack’s ambition is to meet the requirements for the Carnegie classification of an R2 research institution. Through initiatives such as The Center for Health Inclusion, Research and Practice (CHIRP), faculty across the institution are conducting impactful research that contributes to the wisdom on which society bases its decisions.
Everything (and everyone) you need to succeed.
Here, you’re never on your own. From academic advisors and career counselors, to resume workshops and networking events, you’ll find all the people and resources you need to meet your goals, whether you’re an undergraduate student, a graduate student or someone already in the working world who wants to continue their education and accelerate career growth.
Faculty who truly care — about their subject and you.
At Merrimack, we believe that small classes deliver big ideas. With our 14:1 student-faculty ratio, you’ll get to know your professors — experts who have literally been there and done that and want to help you do the same.
Our I-love-it-here community.
From one-of-a-kind traditions to scream-your-head-off Division I games, plus countless chances to give back by doing good through community service, you’ll find plenty of ways to make your college experience a memorable one.
Location, location, location.
Sun-soaked trees lining grassy quads. Winding brick paths and beautiful fall foliage. Rolling hills covered by a blanket of snow. Our 220-acre campus is pretty Instagram-worthy (all year round) — and only 20 minutes from Boston.
More affordable than you may think.
Your degree is an investment — and we think it should be an affordable one. That’s why 99 percent of students receive a grant and/or scholarship. Once you factor in financial aid options, the cost of Merrimack comes close to that of a state institution.
A reputation that precedes us.
Not only is Merrimack one of the fastest-growing colleges in the nation, we’re recognized across the country for our excellence and value. Merrimack is one of the top private colleges in Massachusetts, as well as a strong choice for an affordable graduate school program.
