St. Mary's College of Madonna University

St. Mary's College is now a college of Madonna University, much in the way the College of Humanities or the College of Sciences is of any university. Baccalaureate degrees are offered in Sacred Theology, Philosophy, and Polish Studies. St. Mary's College is host to the Catholic Integrated Core Curriculum, a set of courses taken in lieu of general education courses that seeks to integrate Faith and Reason as outlined in Pope John Paul II's encycilical Fides et Ratio, specifically through the study of philosophy, theology, and the great works of Western Civilization (literature, sculpture, etc.).

Orchard Lake Campus of Madonna University

More widely, the campus is referred to as the Orchard Lake Campus of Madonna University. Courses taught cover a wide-array of subjects including psychology, biology, business, and computer science.
