General Education


Mixed Media

- Emily Reich

Malone University is committed to equipping graduates to put “Christ’s Kingdom First” in all of life. In part, this means cultivating in students the skills, knowledge, and dispositions that will equip them to serve effectively in the workplace.

A General Education program is a set of academic requirements common to all students, ranging across a spectrum of academic disciplines and subjects. At Malone University, the mission of general education is to develop wise and thoughtful students who are broadly educated in the liberal arts as well as in Christian scriptures and traditions to serve as faithful agents of transformation in the communities in which they live and work.
