Graduate Education: The Merrimack Difference

Merrimack College’s practical, affordable graduate degrees put you on track to achieve your career objectives. You’ll qualify for better jobs that allow you to maximize your earning power, professional impact, and contribution to your community.

Merrimack alumni stand out in the workplace because our master’s degree and graduate certificates offer:

Exceptional fellowships.

Merrimack College is well known for superior fellowships that combine immersive, hands-on education with real-world professional experience. Offered in most of our master’s degree programs, these competitive opportunities put your career on fast-forward while providing a tuition discount of 50 to 100%.

Attentive faculty.

Our graduate professors don’t merely teach—they connect. You’ll build one-on-one relationships with professional innovators and academic leaders who actively promote your career development and success.


With competitive tuition, generous scholarships and widely available fellowships, Merrimack offers graduate degrees at a cost that’s generally comparable to that of public universities.

Community involvement.

In addition to providing you with professional training, Merrimack graduate programs enable you to work for social and economic reform. You’ll spend time in schools, clinics, government agencies or other parts of the community venues, with opportunities to change lives and make a tangible impact on the people around you.

Flexibility and convenience.

You can choose an accelerated one-year format for most of our master’s degrees, or take a more leisurely pace if that’s a better fit for your budget and schedule. Most of our master’s degree and graduate certificate courses take place during evening hours, so they won’t interfere with your work schedule if you’re employed full-time. Merrimack offers some programs online or in a hybrid onsite/online format.
