Graduate and Professional Research

Graduate students at Mercer work closely with highly published, cited and funded faculty. Our state-of-the-art facilities and equipment give students in the fields of science, medicine and technology the skills and experience necessary to thrive in a professional research environment.

Students earning degrees in disciplines such as education and theology work alongside experienced faculty members to complete projects that not only increase the value of their degrees, but also make a difference in their fields of study.

The collaborative and interdisciplinary nature of our graduate research programs turn students into scholars who gain a competitive edge through their work.
