About Mercyhurst University

Mercyhurst University is an accredited, Catholic institution founded in 1962 by the Sisters of Mercy. Mercyhurst is situated on a hill overlooking the lake in Erie, PA. The picturesque 75-acre campus is home to over 85 undergraduate degree programs, thirteen Master’s programs, and enrolls students from over 47 countries. 

Their mission is to “educate men and women in a culture where faith and reason flourish together, where the beauty and power of the liberal arts combine with an appreciation for the dignity of work and a commitment to serving others.”


All Mercyhurst Education Department programs are fully accredited and approved through the Pennsylvania Department of Education.

“Mercyhurst University could not be more proud of our established relationship with PLS Classes. Our overarching mission within Mercyhurst’s Education Department is to promote effective classroom practice and by extension, provide the next generation of students authentic and engaging educational experiences. PLS is proving to be the exact avenue to evoke that mission. The courses are truly a, “learn it today, use it tomorrow” approach that dovetails perfectly with our programs, our educators, and our university.”
