From the School

Mercer University is one of America's oldest and most distinctive universities, offering rigorous programs that span the undergraduate liberal arts to doctoral-level programs. With more than 8,500 students enrolled in 12 schools and colleges across three campuses in Georgia-Macon, Atlanta, and Savannah-Mercer's reputation for exceptional academics in an engaged learning environment attracts students from across the United States and around the world.

Founded in 1833, Mercer holds the distinction of being the only university in the South to offer liberal arts, engineering, law, medicine and pharmacy at the same institution. Mercer also offers degree programs in business, teacher education, music, professional studies, theology, nursing and health professions. Mercer successfully combines the "best of both worlds," boasting a wide breadth of academic programs and resources of a large research university while maintaining an intimate, student-focused culture more characteristic of smaller liberal arts colleges.

The Mercer experience is defined by the integration of student leadership, academic research, and service to others, and Mercer students rank among the most engaged in the nation. The University's hallmark initiative, Mercer On Mission, takes students out of the classroom and into foreign countries where they use academic knowledge and research to solve significant real-world problems, transforming the lives of those they serve around the world.

The Mercer Bears are longtime members of NCAA Division I athletics and recently joined the Southern Conference—the nation’s fifth-oldest NCAA Division I athletic association. The Bears compete in men's baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, lacrosse, soccer and tennis, and women’s basketball, beach volleyball, cross country, golf, lacrosse, soccer, softball, tennis, track, and volleyball.

Rankings and Lists
For almost two decades, U.S. News & World Report has ranked Mercer among the leading universities in the South, including recently as a "Best Value in the South," and The Princeton Review repeatedly ranks Mercer in the top 15 percent of all colleges and universities in North America. The University has earned national recognition from the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching for its commitment to community engagement and has also been named to the President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll with Distinction for distinguished community service.

Academic Programs

Mercer offers distinctive academic and experiential opportunities during the undergraduate years that prepare students to excel in graduate and professional school as well as to successfully enter the workforce immediately after graduation.

With an average class size of 21 and a 13:1 student/faculty ratio, Mercer's courses are characterized by spirited interchange among talented students and acclaimed faculty. No classes are taught by teaching assistants; instead, they are led by faculty members who hold Ph.D.s (or the equivalent terminal degrees in their fields) from some of the most prestigious institutions in the world. Mercer's professors excel in both scholarly research and teaching abilities, and they mentor and challenge their students to think critically, communicate clearly, act ethically and care passionately.

Mercer students and alumni continue to garner prestigious national awards and accolades, and during the 2013-14 academic year alone, a sophomore was awarded a Goldwater Scholarship; two student-athletes were named First Team Academic All-American; three Mercerians were selected to receive Fulbright U.S. Student Awards to teach abroad; and a graduating senior was awarded a Woodrow Wilson Ohio Teaching Fellowship.

Mercer's core curriculum features two options for students: the Integrative Program combines traditional disciplinary course requirements with several signature multidisciplinary courses, and the Great Books Program engages students through thoughtful conversation sparked by some of the most significant works of literature throughout history, including books by Homer, Plato, Chaucer, and Shakespeare.

Many Mercer students choose to pursue undergraduate research—regardless of major—working independently or alongside a faculty member on projects ranging from the forefront of medical advances to cutting-edge econometrics.

For students seeking an intensely transformative challenge, the Mercer University Honors Program engages exceptional students in an exclusive and enriching academic experience that integrates undergraduate research with interdisciplinary seminars, service-learning courses, cultural and social events, and study abroad opportunities. Students invited to the program select from five academic tracks: business, engineering, international, research, and service.

Mercer Abroad provides holistic and experiential learning opportunities for students to earn academic credit while seeing the world. Mercer's partnerships with school across the globe allow students to choose from a variety of study abroad programs-ranging from trips lasting a few weeks to a full year abroad.

The University's innovative Center for Collaborative Journalism has been called "one of the nation's boldest journalism experiments" by The New York Times for taking the "teaching hospital" model to the newsroom. In collaboration with media partners The (Macon) Telegraph and Georgia Public Broadcasting, journalism and media studies students are placed alongside industry professionals to learn, engage with the community and build an unrivaled portfolio of published work.

Majors and Degrees Offered

Students may choose from more than 65 undergraduate majors across the College of Liberal Arts, School of Engineering, Stetson School of Business and Economics, Tift College of Education, Townsend School of Music, Georgia Baptist College of Nursing, and the College of Health Professions to find the degree program that fits their interests and goals.

Mercer offers a variety of pre-professional tracks that prepare students for graduate or professional school: pre-anesthesiologist assistant, pre-dentistry, pre-law, pre-medicine, pre-occupational therapy, pre-optometry, pre-podiatry, pre-pharmacy, pre-physical therapy, pre-physician assistant, pre-theology and pre-veterinary medicine. Students are paired with a pre-professional advisor who guides them through the undergraduate class selection process as well as the graduate/professional school application process.

Graduate and/or professional degree programs are offered on one or more campuses through the School of Engineering, Stetson School of Business and Economics, Tift College of Education, Townsend School of Music, Georgia Baptist College of Nursing, Walter F. George School of Law, School of Medicine, College of Pharmacy, McAfee School of Theology, College of Health Professions, and Penfield College. Qualified undergraduate students have the unique opportunity to pursue guaranteed admission to the University's nationally recognized and highly competitive graduate and professional programs in medicine, pharmacy, business, physical therapy, law, and nursing.

Mercer students also have the option to earn both their bachelor's and master's degrees in just five years through combined degree programs in accounting, business, and engineering. The University's accelerated law degree program offers qualified students the opportunity to complete a bachelor's degree and law degree in six years, instead of seven. Mercer's dual-degree graduate programs help students diversify their skill set by earning two complementary degrees—such as a law degree (J.D.) along with a master of business administration (M.B.A.)-that prepare graduates more comprehensively for their chosen profession.

Students Say

Mercer University is a Georgia institution anchored in Macon, consisting of a dozen colleges and schools and offering "big school opportunities with a small school environment." The "active and welcoming atmosphere" offers "easy access to study resources" and an administration that "is there for the students." "They are a wonderful support system," says one. Mercer focuses on cultivating a passion for service in both the world and one's immediate surroundings, and many say that the best part about the school is "the community that it builds with the surrounding area." Students are proud to say that their school "upholds integrity, spirit, academia" and "everyone at Mercer has incredible school spirit and really loves being there."

The professors here are "phenomenal," allowing students to think for themselves and arrive at their own conclusions, "leading the discussions in as unbiased a manner as possible," and "playing devil's advocate when necessary." Everyone receives a "small liberal arts classroom experience," tests are geared toward an understanding past the lectures in order "to make sure students truly comprehend the material," and it is common for students and professors to chat about goals and aspirations in casual conversation. "My professors are some of my greatest cheerleaders, supporters, and mentors," says one student. "I have gotten to know them on a personal level, and they have done the same with me."

The holistic approach to general education taken by Mercer is applauded by students, who "are expected to interact every day" and therefore feel prepared to enter the workforce as "well-rounded thinkers." Various courses also have supplemental instruction (SI) where a previous student will assist students for seventy minutes, for three nights a week. "The greatest strength of MU is the value it places on students," says one of a school that "[encourages] participation in every facet of the university."

Students Say

“Mercer is incredible at engaging their students and provides one-on-one attention necessary to provide students with internships and post-graduate opportunities that will continue to aid in their success.” More than 70 percent of Mercer students participate in an internship. Says one Biochemistry major, “Most students are committed to community service and academic excellence, and are pursuing some kind of graduate or professional program following their undergraduate career” and Mercer’s Career Services department helps prepare students for those future steps by hosting career fairs, providing networking opportunities for internships, and putting on resume and cover letter workshops. “Mercer has a strong relationship with many of its alumni, which creates many connections for potential internships and jobs.” These alumni can be found at such varied companies as Mercer alumni can be found at industry leaders all over the country, including Ernst & Young, The Coca-Cola Company, Delta Airlines, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and Merrill Lynch.

Bang For Your Buck

“Mercer is generous with scholarship money,” says one Biology major and other students note that the school’s generosity when it comes to scholarships influenced their decision to attend. While some applaud the school’s financial aid packages, others point out that “the financial aid office regularly makes errors” and call for more “accurate financial aid,” saying it’s currently “embarrassing.” 63 percent of Mercer students have borrowed through some sort of loan program. A Mercer freshman receives an average of $25,370 in need-based gift aid (the average for a Mercer undergraduate is $24,043) and the average need-based loan taken out by a Mercer student is $9,226.

Mercer students have rewritten the definition of the word "involved," and the active undergraduate campus in Macon is home to more than 140 student organizations, including the Student Government Association, national honor societies, academic and career-oriented clubs, national fraternities and sororities, intramural and club sports, service organizations, and diverse special-interest groups.

Students Say

Mercer University has students of all ethnic backgrounds and goals, though most everyone is southern, "studies a lot," and is "involved in at least one campus organization, a campus job, and some kind of regular commitment to community service." A significant portion of students come from a "conservative Christian background" but "cultural backgrounds and demographic differences have very little effect on students' relationships." "There are numerous cultural/ethnic organizations that each student can be a part of without feeling excluded," says a student. In addition to the excellent town-gown relations between Mercer and Macon, students also "think about helping others and giving back" both locally (building local homes, accounting classes to help the underprivileged manage their finances) and internationally (through Mercer On Mission programs).

Campus Facilities & Equipment

Macon has served as Mercer's home since 1871, when the institution moved from its original campus in Penfield, Georgia. The beautiful Macon campus is home to the University's traditional undergraduate program and houses the College of Liberal Arts, School of Medicine, School of Engineering, Stetson School of Business and Economics, Tift College of Education, and Townsend School of Music. Mercer’s Walter F. George School of Law is located one mile away on Coleman Hill overlooking downtown Macon. This charming city serves as the educational, medical, cultural, and commercial hub of Central Georgia, boasting a rich arts and musical heritage and offering easy access to the Georgia coast, Florida beaches, and the Blue Ridge Mountains.

The Macon campus is a blend of tradition and innovation. Breathtaking, historical landmarks like the Godsey Administration Building with its iconic spires are complemented by newer, modern structures, such as the 230,000-square-foot University Center and the new Moye Football and Lacrosse Complex. On the edge of campus, students and the local community converge in Mercer Village, the vibrant, thriving go-to destination for food, coffee, shopping, and fun.

Living on campus is a significant part of the Mercer experience, and undergraduates may choose from a range of on-campus housing options, including traditional residence halls, modern apartments, and fraternity and sorority houses.

Located on 200 heavily wooded acres inside the Atlanta Perimeter, Mercer's Cecil B. Day Graduate and Professional Campus is home to the College of Pharmacy, College of Health Professions, McAfee School of Theology, Georgia Baptist College of Nursing, and Penfield College, along with programs of the Stetson School of Business and Economics and the Tift College of Education.

Savannah is home to a four-year M.D. program of the School of Medicine, located on the campus of Memorial University Medical Center.

Students Say

The "beautiful" campus is small so students "are all very connected in classes and extracurriculars." QuadWorks is the school's main organizer of events, putting on movies, game nights, socials, and other activities that get students involved, and students attend a lot of sporting events: "Fall is football, winter is basketball (which is probably the most popular), baseball is in the spring." Athletics and Greek life are very popular; for those not playing sports at the collegiate level, "there are intramural sports and club sports that you can be a part of." Though studying takes up a good deal of time and "Mercer is a real working campus" as far as students with jobs go, there are plenty of Netflix and card game nights.

Macon is "a vibrant town" with a good music scene and a nearby downtown that boasts restaurants, theaters, bars (the campus is dry), and shopping; students head here often. Mercer is also rich in traditional ceremonies for students to participate in such as a "pilgrimage to Penfield (the original site of the university), the annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony, and Founders Day."
