Pre Graduate School Programs

For many Mercer students, their undergraduate studies spark a level of interest and passion that leads them to pursue advanced degrees in their discipline. Graduate study is often rigorous and involves significant time (and often financial) investments. Mercer students are well prepared with the knowledge, skills and drive necessary to excel academically in competitive graduate and professional programs nationwide. If you are considering graduate or professional school either immediately after your undergraduate degree or as an option in the future, we are here to help.
