dcsimg Philosophy and Theology

The Vision

Every institution and society needs good persons who think, who think especially about the most fundamental and profound realities. These thinkers, by their thinking, become extraordinarily unique and distinctive. Their contributions to society and all of humankind have often been astounding. They, in many ways, shape our lives, our world, and our living faith. Their memories, actions, and contributions are celebrated and continued in the Theology/Philosophy Department here at Marian University. Come, discover your roots. There is no business nor institution which does not need more persons who can "think outside of the box." The habits of mind and heart, and the skills of a liberal education are offered here in an intelligent and faith-filled atmosphere.

Marian University's philosophy club is named for the greek word σοφία meaning "wisdom." The club creates a forum for students to discuss both ancient wisdom and the latest ideas of our times. The Sophia club invites the whole campus to several BBQs throughout the school year, hosts movie nights, and sponsors lectures each semester in theology or philosophy.
