Philosophy-Theology Minor Program
Although distinct disciplines, theology and philosophy have informed each other since the time of Socrates and so their mutual study illuminates the other. Indeed, Pope St. John Paul II taught that faith (the domain of theology) and reason (the domain of philosophy) are "like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of truth."
The Theology/Philosophy minor is thus designed to give students an opportunity to explore the question of Truth in a flexible program of study.
The minor also fulfills a specific degree requirement for those seeking a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Arts in Nursing degree.
Minor in Theology / Philosophy:
Minimum of 22 semester credits. Students must take at least five courses in Theology or Philosophy, 12 credits of which must be upper division.
Even as one of the most affordable private universities in the nation, the University of Mary does offer a variety of scholarships. In fact, 99% of main campus undergraduate students receive some form of scholarship!
We strongly encourage you to contact your personal admissions representative to discover all of the options that might be available to you. In many cases, a program specific scholarship is just one component of a complete financial aid package.
Our admissions professionals will work together with our Office of Financial Assistance to ensure that you get the best financial aid package possible to finance your education.
