Change the World

Changing the world starts with changing a life. Yours.

When we think of college students, we don’t envision what they’re wearing, when they were born, or what they were before they were a college student. At Mercer, it’s about the ideas in their minds, the potential in their hearts, and how we can help them bring all that good stuff out into the world. When we picture a student, we see someone who wants to learn. And that could be anyone, from anywhere, at any time in life.

Find Your Fit

On campus. Online. On your time.

Our evening, weekend, and online programs are designed to fit your busy lifestyle.


Updated Education Programs

Mercer’s Bachelor of Science in Education (B.S.Ed.) programs are now offered in a blended format. While working toward becoming teachers, students enjoy the flexibility of completing the majority of their coursework through both synchronous and asynchronous online classes and attending class in person twice per eight-week course.


I highly recommend Mercer for any adult who can handle college coursework, but had to put their education on hold due to life. I started my college career in 2010, and took a four-year break from 2012-2016. I am a first generation college graduate and I'm proud to have Mercer be part of that story.

Mercer was very convenient to my work and home, and I also loved the small classroom sizes where I could get to know my fellow students and my professors.

In an increasingly competitive job market, the more education you have, the better. Evening classes allowed me to carry on with my daytime routine while furthering my education.
