The forefront of scientific discovery

No other program in Iowa offers this unique set of science marketing skills.

It happens every day. Scientists uncover earth-shattering, ground-breaking, mind-boggling new discoveries that leave us at a loss for words.

Mount Mercy's major in science marketing helps you analyze those new findings, put words to fresh ideas, and refine your abilities to share science's evolving narrative with the world.

Our hybrid science marketing program blends science skills with marketing prowess. Insightful marketing experts and research leading scientists round out our compassionate faculty who prioritize your academic success and prepare you for sales and marketing careers with chemical, agricultural, engineering, pharmaceutical and medical device companies.

The education is fantastic, but even beyond that—Mount Mercy will support you, allow you to find yourself, and provide you with the foundation to be successful.

Apply the concepts from both fields in a truly integrated approach.

Foundational biology and chemistry courses teach you the fundamentals of science while business courses teach you to employ the rudiments of consumer marketing. Science marketing is the perfect major for students who love science, building business relationships, and communicating clearly and persuasively.

At Mount Mercy, you gain experience through community collaboration, job shadowing, club activities and becoming a part of our tight-knit, fun-loving campus community committed to meaningful service and community engagement.
