Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

I love that my program is so experiential and convenient. I'm learning more because I'm not just being fed information from a book, but practicing and having meaningful discussions that force me to grow as a person. Even though the campus on which my program is available is an hour away, each class meets for a longer period of time one per week. That makes the program convenient for me, given that I work full-time.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

I really do love my program. It is a great two year program for those who want to pursue research as their career. Since it is a new program, we are the firsts so there still are kinks to resolve.

Degree: Software Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

I think Mercer University is a great school. I did not attend for my undergraduate degree but had friends from high school that did. The campus is small and Macon is a nice city, and its only 100 miles from Atlanta if you feel you can't find anything to do in Macon. The faculty and staff are great and can really give you the attention and help you need to succeed. I'm very pleased with my graduate experience at Mercer University and definitely would encourage others to look into it.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

My gradate program offers a very competitive curriculum that has made Mercer University recognized as fourth best private pharmacy school in the nation. With this curriculum, I will be sure to become a very successful pharmacist and healthcare professional.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2013

Mercer's Ed Leadership PhD program is geared for the working professional. For the most part the professors are supportive. The program is a cohort model with tracks for higher ed and k - 12. Because I already hold a MA in Ed Leadership, I haven't found the program to be enlightening. If I had to do it all over again, I think I would have selected the program in C & I.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2013

This is a great program with small classes which allows for more personalized experiences within each class. The tuition is slightly expensive, however, this is expected of a private institution. Overall it is a great school, with great facilities, programs, and professors. Also the diversity of the students who attend is amazing. You will literally meet people from all over the world.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2013

The school is amazing! My program is very thorough. I have never taken a course on education but starting this program has been a breeze. Each course completely goes with one another which I feel is what makes this program so great. The con I have with this graduate program is that it doesn't allow much room for working when it comes the field experiences. For instance Practicum is 60 hours required in a classroom & with student teaching you can't work at all. So where are the scholarships? Where are the grants? I have a 4.0 and I'm literally stressed about how I'm going to pay my bills when I'm doing student teaching.
