At Merrimack, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to college. Everyone’s journey is different and we strive to create a personalized academic experience that’s just as unique as you are.
That’s why we offer interdisciplinary combined majors, which allow you to integrate minors from different academic areas across our five schools. By combining a major, you’ll have the opportunity to build multiple skill sets across in-demand disciplines. As a result, you’ll stand out in the marketplace.
Do you love physics but plan to go into business? Are you passionate about the environment, but want to fuel that drive with data science? Our combined majors allow you to tailor your academic experience to your passions, all while staying on track to graduate.
Merrimack is developing a suite of combined majors, based on a tailored set of courses across two disciplines. Or if you are curious about a combination that isn’t listed, chat with your academic advisor to craft your own self-designed major or minor that captures your goals and curiosity.
