Building on our strong undergraduate programs in nursing, education, and business, we’ve grown to support more than 40 majors and minors, plus four new graduate programs, an accelerated adult program, and online courses and bachelor's degrees.
In 2010, we officially became Mount Mercy University, affirming our arrival as a comprehensive educational resource for greater Iowa.
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.
