A group of Marian University students in Europe.

Semester, Summer, and Year-Long Programs

Whether you have a few weeks, a few months, or want a full-year study-abroad experience, Marian University offers a variety of opportunities for students who want to explore other countries and cultures.

Our faculty and staff will work with you to find a program that meets your academic goals and personal interests. We partner with accredited colleges, universities, and higher education institutions with reputable programs to ensure the courses you take abroad are rigorous, relevant, and will apply toward your Marian University degree.

Mary Carmen recently completed a study-abroad experience in Spain and was the first student from Marian to study abroad for an entire academic year. She completed the Spanish Language & Liberal Arts program through Cultural Experiences Abroad (CEA) and was generously awarded a Benjamin A. Gilman Scholarship that made her experience possible. While abroad, Mary Carmen enjoyed her time making friends, participating in an authentic cultural exchange, and adapting to a new lifestyle.
