Marian University's short-term study-abroad courses enable you to spend time exploring specific topics, subjects, themes, and ideas in the arts and sciences.
As part of your learning experience, you'll travel with a group of students and faculty to relevant cities and countries, such as Italy, France, Canada, and the United Kingdom.

Each short-term study-abroad course is typically two to three weeks in duration. Each course is team-taught by Marian University faculty members in sponsoring departments.
