Description of Program:
St. John Paul II called for a New Evangelization, “new in its ardor, methods, and expression.” The University of Mary is answering the call for a New Evangelization by partnering with Arizona State University to establish Mary College at ASU. Mary College at ASU is a domestic exchange program in which University of Mary students will have the opportunity to take classes at ASU, one of the top ranked public universities in the country, while also taking Catholic Studies classes taught by University of Mary faculty at Mary College, its satellite campus in Tempe adjacent to ASU’s main campus. In exchange, ASU students will have the opportunity to explore their Catholic faith by enrolling in the Catholic Studies courses taught at Mary College and participating in the activities and events sponsored by the program.
This unprecedented and revolutionary partnership between the University of Mary and ASU is designed as a domestic exchange. Students will pay their normal tuition and fees to their respective Home Institution, and will take classes at the respective Host Institution for credit that will be transferred to their transcripts at their Home Institution, with no additional tuition cost to students to experience these transformative courses.
To apply, you will need the following:
1. Student Information
2. Unofficial transcript
3. ASU Essay
4. Faculty Recommendation
Preference given to Junior/Seniors and Catholic Studies majors and minors.
