Explore, Experience, and Contribute

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.
