Misericordia University was founded by the Religious Sisters of Mercy on August 15, 1924. The university offers bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees as well as post-master’s and post-bachelor’s certificates.

Misericordia gives students a choice of 30 majors in three Academic Colleges:

  • College of Arts and Science
  • College of Health Sciences
  • College of Professional Studies and Social Sciences

Misericordia’s Guaranteed Placement Program (or GPP) is a development program pertaining to a student’s education.

Established in 1999, the GPP assists students entering the workforce or graduate school after graduation. Students participate in the GPP for all four years of their college experience. If they do not receive a job offer or are not accepted into graduate/professional school within six months of graduation, the university gives them a paid internship in their chosen field.
