About the School 

Study of the liberal arts is at the heart of Merrimack’s curriculum. Whatever your major, you will be challenged to grow through the kind of discussion and inquiry about the human experience which the liberal arts cultivate.

Liberal Arts Disciplines

When you study the liberal arts, you are encouraged to investigate the human condition to better understand issues of self and society, meaning and values. Liberal arts disciplines value curiosity, creativity and innovation and rely on critical thinking, active reading and writing.

Why Choose Liberal Arts?

In the Augustinian Tradition

The School of Liberal Arts embodies the Catholic and Augustinian identity of Merrimack College through its dedication to the pursuit of knowledge as a community activity informed by dialogue between faith and reason. Our efforts are inspired by St. Augustine’s personal journey through knowledge to wisdom, ultimately in quest of God as perfect or divine wisdom.
