dcsimg History


Marian University's history and political science faculty seek to help students develop as educated persons in a democracy, to provide them with information concerning the past and present and insight into the future, to encourage them to expand their world view and to appreciate their own and other cultures. More, we seek to develop our students ability to think critically and to write concisely.
