Mount Mercy University's science marketing major is the first of its kind in Iowa, placing students at the forefront of scientific discovery.

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.
