The College of Theology, Arts, and Sciences (CTAS) is comprised of nine undergraduate departments that offer a wide range of disciplines. Because of this diversity, the College of Theology, Arts, and Sciences takes a primary role in educating our students in the Christian liberal arts tradition, the hallmark of Malone University. CTAS is also very pleased to offer several unique interdisciplinary undergraduate programs that are not housed within any one of the specific departments or schools:
Environmental Science Minor
Environmental Studies Minor
Environmental Studies (secondary major)
Gender Studies Minor
Global and International Studies Minor
Global and International Studies (secondary major)
In keeping with the liberal arts tradition, we seek to fulfill the mission of Malone University by giving students a breadth of knowledge within the context of Christian faith. In classrooms, students are challenged to study in order to gain knowledge and also to develop an understanding of the historical, societal, cultural, and religious complexities that define and shape the disciplines. The faculty of the College of Theology, Arts, and Sciences, as all Malone University faculty, confess Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord and agree with the doctrinal statement of the University. Thus, each faculty member seeks to integrate a biblically sound worldview into the curriculum of each course. Students are, therefore, further challenged to bring their own faith to bear on the knowledge that they have obtained.
Finally, students are challenged to develop and hone thinking patterns that lead to critical analysis, acumen, and ability to persuade. Ultimately, the goal of the College of Theology, Arts, and Sciences is to provide the educational foundation for all students at Malone University so that they will have a life-long passion for learning, will have a broad perspective of the world, will mature in Christian faith, and will have the intellectual and spiritual capability and courage to influence society toward godly behavior.
