Here are a few reasons why you should choose Marian University

Why choose Marian University?

Marian University is more than just a place to earn a degree—it’s a place that will change your life and your world. Visit us and see for yourself what we have to offer!

It's not easy, but you're not alone.

  • Earning a degree at Marian is challenging. Classes are rigorous. You'll work hard and dig deep. But with a 13:1 student-to-faculty ratio, you'll take classes from faculty (not teaching assistants) who encourage and support you every step of the way.
  • Our curriculum includes hands-on, high-impact learning experiences in every undergraduate or graduate course you take.
  • Take part in academic research, working with faculty who are experts in their fields. Present your work at research conferences and publish your findings in scholarly journals.
  • For a deeper experience, apply for our Honors Academy. Our honors students from all majors live and learn together, completing honors-level general education courses and advanced interdisciplinary seminars.

It goes beyond academics​.

  • What you learn outside the classroom is important. Marian's business students, for example, work with local businesses and nonprofit groups to solve real business challenges. Education majors complete field experiences in which they work with children of all ages, cultures, and backgrounds. 
  • ​Travel is a great teacher. Taking a study-abroad course or completing an international internship will give you a broad global perspective that's needed for career success, no matter what degree you pursue.
  • Find opportunities to serve others at Marian. You can mentor a local child living in poverty, help revitalize local greenways and abandoned properties, and travel on "alternative" break trips to work in under-served communities in places like Appalachia, Puerto Rico, and Guatemala.

You'll become a leader.

  • More than 50 percent of Marian undergraduates are active in at least one student organization. Groups like the Student Government Association, Model United Nations, Campus Ministry, Student Nurses Association, and the Engineering & Technology Club are just a few  choices. Serving as a Presidential Ambassador, orientation leader, or resident assistant are other possibilities.
  • Take part in special programs and conferences designed to help you develop a strong understanding of leadership concepts and theories. They include thought-provoking activities to help you explore your personal leadership style.
  • You'll meet alumni, civic leaders, business executives, and others who inspire you. They have started companies, worked as school leaders, and led congregations.

Explore your faith.

You'll be career-ready.

  • Marian's Indianapolis location enables us to connect you with major employers in business sectors ranging from education to healthcare, the biosciences, pharmaceuticals, logistics and distribution, advanced manufacturing, technology, and many other industries.
  • Because Marian University is connected with top business leaders, we can help you find great internship and other experiences that will get you where you want to go after graduation. We'll also provide you with job search, resume assistance, mock interviews, etiquette lessons, and more to prepare you for career success.
  • In short, our academic, service, and co-curricular experiences prepare you for life after graduation. Not only will you be prepared for your chosen career, you'll also be prepared to lead.
