Why Malone?

Why should you choose to study history, philosophy, or the social sciences at Malone University.

Listed below are several distinctives about our programs. Or, if you have questions - we'd love to talk to you! Feel free to contact us

  • Malone is deeply intentional about integrating the Christian faith into the curriculum and into the classroom – and will urge you to seriously consider your vocation for your life as well as your career. Professors are constantly asking questions such as, “What does history have to say about the Christian faith, and what does the Christian faith have to say about history?”

  • You will be taught by professors who have studied all over the world and bring a global perspective into the classroom. Malone’s internationally-directed history curriculum focuses on both Western and  non-Western history and you will also particularly study the relationship between Christianity and Islam. 

  • Internship opportunities are available (and encouraged!) at the local, state, national, and international level – whatever you’re most interested in – or try several! Malone has partnerships with many programs, such as the Bliss Institute [link here] and our director of off-campus and global studies is here to help! Our students often intern in the White House, the State House, for the Department of Homeland Security, for World Vision, and for NGOs all over the world. 

  • The department also emphasizes out-of-the-classroom cross cultural engagement and interactions that encourage students to visit places such as Friends Meetinghouses, Buddhist temples, and mosques.

  • You’ll take most of your upper-level courses with the same peers – meaning you’ll have the opportunity to develop a rich learning community. 

  • Malone professors encourage their students to freely explore theological and philosophical questions honestly and seriously, yet within a context of a deliberately Christian framework. You won’t receive a lesser grade if you disagree with a professor – though you might be invited to join them for coffee one-on-one to talk about why! 

  • In all majors in this department, you will be taught to read well, to write well, to think well – and to honestly pursue your education with humility and charity. You will be pushed to think responsibly and thoughtfully and to be fully informed.
