About Georgian Court University

Georgian Court University was founded by, and is sponsored by, the Sisters of Mercy of New Jersey. Open to students of all faiths, Georgian Court provides a comprehensive liberal arts education in the Roman Catholic tradition with special concern for women, and a curriculum that is broad enough to be truly liberal, yet specialized enough to provide in-depth preparation for careers or further study.  To learn more about our mission, click here.
