Academic Programs

Bachelor of Science Programs

Mercy College offers six bachelor of science programs, each of which allows you to continue working while pursuing a college degree. The programs are based upon a foundation of liberal arts and sciences that is essential for an informed and productive career. 

Associate of Science and Certificate Programs

A Mercy College associate of science degree is designed primarily to prepare students for immediate employment upon degree completion and the successful passage of necessary licensure/certification tests for the respective field. The programs also prepare graduates to continue their education at the bachelor level in various programs, like those offered by Mercy College.

Four of the seven associate degrees here at Mercy College – nursing, physical therapist assistant, radiological technology, diagnostic medical sonography – will require you to enroll for two consecutive years to complete.

However, several of our academic programs allow you to complete the first year of your professional education, thus earning a certificate in less than 12 months, and still sit for your licensure/certification. You can then seek employment in your new profession and return to complete your associate and bachelor’s degrees with the help of tuition reimbursement from many area healthcare employers.
