Academics

The last decade has been an exciting period of expansion for Mount Mercy.

Building on our strong undergraduate programs in nursing, education, and business, we’ve grown to support more than 40 majors and minors, plus six graduate programs, an accelerated program, and online courses and bachelor's degrees.

Our Degree Programs

A Mercy Education

In communities across the Midwest, Mount Mercy graduates stand out for their volunteerism, compassion, and social responsibility. Since our founding by the Sisters of Mercy over 80 years ago, our academic coursework has never lost sight of its practical applications, particularly in the realms of service and ethical leadership. As a Mount Mercy student, your classroom will often be the community itself, applying your new knowledge and convictions to help those in need.
