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.

Overall

From The School

Students seeking first-year admission to Mercer University's traditional undergraduate program should submit an application for admission (either the University's application at apply.mercer.edu or The Common Application at commonapp.org); an official high school transcript (accepted students intending to enroll also must submit a final transcript following completion of high school to finalize their admission); an official standardized test score report (SAT and/or ACT), a letter of recommendation and a non-refundable $50 application fee.

Applications are evaluated on the following six factors: academic rigor of high school curriculum, performance and grade point average in high school coursework, standardized SAT or ACT scores, extracurricular activities-with emphasis on leadership and service, quality of written expression as reflected in application essay and letter of recommendation from teacher or high school guidance counselor.

Students seeking enrollment for fall semester should submit applications by the appropriate deadline during their senior year of high school. To be considered for the University's most prestigious scholarship opportunities, students should submit their application and all supporting materials by the November 1 priority deadline. Mercer's regular decision deadline to be considered for University-funded scholarships and financial aid is February 1. Mercer processes admission decisions on a rolling basis.

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

As the oldest private university in Georgia, Mercer University is a school that provides boundless opportunities for its undergraduates. Indeed, its "small size and focus on research and leadership enables students to quickly get involved in both academic pursuits with professors, as well as leadership positions in the extracurricular of their choice." Moreover, service is central to its educational mission, and Mercer aims to produce graduates who will endeavor to "make positive changes in their local community and the world [at large]." While the academics here are challenging, it's obvious that the university wants to see its students succeed. Hence, the school maintains an "academic resource center on campus that is open until 3am and has tutors for almost every subject, people willing to help edit and revise papers, etc."

Undergrads also happily report that their professors all seem "genuinely invested in their students." One pleased individual elaborates, "Professors WANT students to come to their office hours, and make it easy through appointments or regular office hours." And a fellow student boasts, "All my professors have absolutely floored me with their enthusiasm, intelligence, and willingness to help." They've also been known to "incorporate videos, activities, and discussions into the class" to stimulate students and keep courses interesting. Perhaps this satisfied student explains it best, "Our professors are not simply in the classroom for fifty minutes Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. They are [there for us] throughout our entire four years at Mercer."

Students Say

Undergrads at Mercer are quick to sing the praises of their "absolutely amazing" peers. To begin with, students here tend to be "full of energy, enthusiasm, and drive." As one proud undergrad explains, "We have a running joke that at everyone is involved in at least three student organizations, has at least one job, and regularly participates in some off-campus organization." Even better, they're also extremely welcoming and friendly." Another ecstatic student chimes in, "Everyone's...ready and willing to offer assistance or check up on you if you seem to be having a bad day, even students...you've never met before are quick to make sure you know they're there for you." A third undergrad agrees sharing, "When I...came to visit Mercer for the first time, EVERYONE was so kind, and I honestly thought [it] was a facade. Come to find out that everyone really is kind here." Importantly, though the university does have "a large white population," students assure us that "diversity does exist on campus." Indeed, "Mercer is attractive to international students of all sorts, minority students, and students of all types from different regions of the country and world." And, the "best part about it is that everybody here is so accepting of people's differences and so open-minded." What more could you ask for from your fellow students?

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

Mercer has done an outstanding job creating "an inviting, stimulating atmosphere for its students." After all, there's always an activity or event to attend. To begin with, the university "has one of the best, if not the best, intramural sports programs in the country." And everyone from first-years through seniors are keen to get in on the action. Beyond that, "two of our major student-led organizations, QuadWorks and Mercer Maniacs, put on events all of the time for students. QuadWorks plans about eighty events each semester doing things like riding camels on hump day, having movie nights out on the lawn, or even attending our annual music festival, BearStock, for free!" Fraternities and sororities do have a presence at Mercer. However, Greek life doesn't wholly dominate campus life. We've also been informed that "there is also a vibrant party scene if you know where to look." Lastly, students report that hometown Macon is "a nice city" that offers many exciting options and activities including "hiking at the Indian Mounds," along with "trampoline parks, movie theaters, [and] fine dining." It's quite common to see undergrads heading "downtown on weekend nights."
