Bachelor's programs that fit into your life

Why shouldn't your education fit into your schedule?

With two formats, our bachelor's programs are tailored to your needs. Different pacing, different modalities, and all of the freedom to choose the right path for you.

Our traditional undergraduate degrees offer courses at the semester pace. This is a great option for a residential, on-campus experience, or if you're comfortable commuting to classes during the day.

Our accelerated undergraduate degrees offer online courses in 5- and 10-week blocks (RN-BSN also offered on-campus). This is a great option if you’re a working professional, caregiver, or need flexibility on when/where you take your classes. 

Is graduate school in your future? Current Mount Mercy students can take up to four graduate courses at no extra cost through MMU Plus!

Forward-thinking, future-focused education

Receive mentorship from professors who merge learning with doing. Connect with career-building internships. At Mount Mercy, you’ll learn to serve others, discover more about yourself, and graduate prepared to succeed, no matter your path.
