Marianist Social Transformation

The minor in Marianist social transformation offers an interdisciplinary approach to Catholic, Marianist, and Christian studies. The program allows the student to utilize the rich resources in service, teaching, and research at the University of Dayton in order to explore and investigate those topics and issues that lie at the heart of the University. Open to all, participants will benefit from the 200 year Marianist experiment in the professions and higher education. Through its courses and activities, the minor prepares distinctive graduates to carry out social transformation based upon an understanding of Catholic and Christian contributions to the arts, sciences, and the professions.
