Our Program

In the Winston School of Education and Social Policy, we believe that education is a transformative practice that changes the world.

Based in Massachusetts and founded in 1947 by the Order of St. Augustine, Merrimack College is a private, nonprofit institution where all education is enriched by the Catholic Augustinian tradition of seeking truth through inquiry and dialogue. Merrimack's Winston School of Education and Social Policy has a decades-long commitment to social justice and reform. Our graduate programs in education, community engagement and criminology give you the practical skills and theoretical expertise to strengthen your professional impact and create a better world. Merrimack's longstanding partnerships enable you to interact directly with school districts, social service organizations, law enforcement agencies and other stakeholders. You’ll have the opportunity to change lives and influence minds while you’re completing your graduate studies.
