Faith & Academics

A Malone education is focused on seeking the truth through the integration of Christian faith and learning in and out of the classroom.

Education through discipleship

Malone faculty are committed to helping students examine what the Christian faith has to say about all disciplines, as well as what every discipline has to say about the Christian faith. In fact, as one of Malone’s Foundational Principles states:

We believe that faith and knowledge are inextricably bound to one another and should not be compartmentalized or fragmented. Professors and students at Malone examine what the Christian faith has to say about a given discipline and what that discipline has to say about the Christian faith. These actions stem from our belief that Christ is known not only through Scripture, the workings of the Holy Spirit, and tradition, but also through the pursuit of knowledge. We are called to make Christ known through scholarship in our individual disciplines, evangelism to our community, and service to others. These actions reflect our conviction that a Malone education should equip students to fulfill their callings. Therefore, we nurture intellectual curiosity, creativity, critical thinking, compassion, and spiritual growth.


“Now that all the activities, classes, and the 'college experience' are over, what stands out is the Christian foundation on which everything was built.”
