Short-Term Programs

Marian University's short-term study-abroad courses enable you to spend time exploring specific topics, subjects, themes, and ideas in the 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, and the United Kingdom, among others

Examples of study-abroad course titles from previous years are:

  • The Roman World: Its Time, Its Transformation, and Its Influence
  • Revolution: Arts and Ideas

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

As a Marian University student, you can take advantage of these new exchange programs at international universities. Contact Anthony Shull for details on these exciting opportunities!

The classic sagas of Ireland and their expression by way of culture, myth, and art will begin our study. Abstraction in the form of Hibernian interlace connects Ireland to the Iberian arabesque of Spain. What stories, traditions, and outlooks does each reveal? What tensions arise from the confrontation between the myriad of cultures found throughout Ireland and Spain when classicism, with its origins in Italy, takes hold?
