About the School

Study of the arts & sciences is at the heart of Merrimack’s curriculum. Whatever your major, you will be challenged to grow through the kind of discussion and inquiry about the human experience which the arts & sciences cultivate.

Arts & Sciences Disciplines

When you study the arts & sciences, you are encouraged to investigate the human condition to better understand issues of self and society, meaning and values. Arts & sciences disciplines value curiosity, creativity and innovation and rely on critical thinking, active reading and writing.

Why Choose Arts & Sciences?

In the Augustinian Tradition

The School of Arts & Sciences embodies the Catholic and Augustinian identity of Merrimack College through its dedication to the pursuit of knowledge as a community activity informed by dialogue between faith and reason. Our efforts are inspired by St. Augustine’s personal journey through knowledge to wisdom, ultimately in quest of God as perfect or divine wisdom.
