Duns Scotus College

The former Duns Scotus College, once a Franciscan Friary in Southfield, is now the non-demoninational Word of Faith.

Duns Scotus College was a college of the Order of Friars Minor or O.F.M. in Southfield, Michigan from 1930 until 1979 owned by Saint John the Baptist Province in Cincinnati Ohio. It was first regularly accredited in 1969.[1] It offered only bachelor degrees in Philosophy until 1971 when it expanded to offer a few other liberal arts degrees.

It was founded when the Friars decided their previous three-seminary set up in Kentucky and Ohio was too unwieldy. In 1928 ground was broken for the college at the corner of Nine Mile Road and Evergreen Road in Southfield. It was designed by Wilfrid B. Anthony.

People with bachelors degrees from Duns Scotus are found on the faculties of many colleges and universities in the United States.[2][3]
