Gwynedd-Mercy College is a Catholic college with a strong foundation in the liberal arts. Our academic distinction lies in the intersection of excellent programs in health care, education, and business administration, which prepares students to become leaders in the region’s powerful and growing life-sciences industry. Our enrollment of nearly 3,000 students and prime location 30 minutes outside of Philadelphia means that we’re large enough to offer a vibrant campus life but small enough that professors can develop mentoring relationships with students. We educate students in the Mercy tradition of service to society, preparing graduates who not only find jobs but also create lives and careers with deep meaning.
