Study Abroad

Marian University recognizes the importance of all study abroad opportunities in contributing to the intellectual and spiritual development of students. The university values study abroad as a way to enhance the student's appreciation of global communities. We believe that these programs offer one of the best ways to explore first-hand the rich complexities of diverse cultures and civilizations around the world.

Students from all disciplines—from the traditional liberal arts majors to those specializing in the areas of professional studies—are strongly encouraged to participate. With careful planning, these off-campus study abroad opportunities can be some of the most enjoyable and satisfying educational experiences for the student.

Why study abroad?

Hear from Daniel Elsener, President of Marian University, and current students alike on the benefits of an abroad experience.

All Marian University education abroad programming including study abroad, third-party, and faculty-led abroad programs to Europe for Spring or Summer 2016 are under strict review due to recent terrorist attacks around the world and the subsequent U.S. Department of State Travel Alert.

Marian University is pleased to be in a position to offer international experiences for our students, faculty, and staff; however, duty-of-care in the way of health, safety, and security shall always remain a key priority in the development and implementation of all education abroad programming and international travel. 

Further updates about program offerings and university-wide international travel policies are forthcoming and will be noted on this website and student/faculty/staff newsletters.
