Welcome to the Department of History, Philosophy, and Social Sciences at Malone University.


We offer the following bachelor of arts degrees:

Seeking to make "Christ's Kingdom First"?

As part of Malone University's College of Theology, Arts, and Sciences, the Department of History, Philosophy, and Social Sciences, you will think through puzzling ethical questions, develop an understanding of the relationship between theology and politics and hosts of other issues that stand at the intersection of faith and culture. You will scrutinize deeply held beliefs and cultivate a love for truth and a more mature Christian faith. You will study forces such as culture, religion, politics, gender, class and race to help you achieve a deeper understanding of your relationship with your local, national, and global communities. You will learn how to become a virtuous citizen and a responsible shaper of Church and culture, enabling you to develop and sustain a Christian view of the world of human life as you are encouraged to - with the entire Malone community - seek Christ's kingdom first.

Step Into Your Future

Regardless of whether you study history, education, philosophy, political science, or sociology, the courses you take will help you develop abilities that are important marks of a well-developed mind: the capacity to communicate effectively in speech and writing, employ critical reasoning skills, and analyze complex problems. These abilities - cultivated by our traditional liberal arts programs - will serve you well for whatever field or vocation you wish to enter.
