Why Choose Marian University?

Here are a few reasons why students and alumni tell us they chose Marian University.

Challenging Academics

  • All Marian University classes are taught by faculty—not teaching assistants. And, with an average student-to-faculty ratio of 14:1, you will learn from faculty who know your name and who care about your success.
  • Marian University's curriculum is intentionally designed to deliver hands-on, high-impact learning experiences in every undergraduate and graduate degree program we offer. 
  • At Marian University, undergraduate students have many opportunities to engage in research, working alongside faculty who are experts in their fields, presenting work at professional conferences, and publishing work in scholarly publications—activities reserved for graduate and doctoral students at many colleges.

Career Opportunities

  • Our 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 in Indianapolis and across central Indiana, we can help you secure internships in fields related to your area of study. Business students majoring in accounting, finance, and other fields have interned with companies like Target, Salesforce, Finish Line, and Ernst and Young, to name a few
  • In general, Marian University students get real-world experience in their fields much earlier than students at other schools. Our education majors, for example, begin getting hands-on experience in real K-12 schools during their freshmen year.  


  • Marian University is a friendly, inclusive campus that welcomes about 3,000 students from across the nation and around the world each year. Students, parents, and others enjoy our friendly, peaceful campus located minutes from world-class sports, entertainment, shopping, arts and cultural, and other attractions.
  • We're proud to be the only Catholic university in Indianapolis. Our faith, heritage, and Franciscan values that include dignity of the individual, peace and justice, reconciliation, and responsible stewardship influence all aspects of our campus. Marian University is where intellect meets integrity, and that integrity is reflected in how we teach students to succeed and serve as future leaders in their fields.
  • Marian University is more than just a place you will earn your degree—it’s a place that will change your life and change your world. Visit us and see for yourself what we have to offer!
