Study Abroad for Your Major
This "Programs by Major" area is part of the larger Study Abroad Curricular Integration (CI) project and will showcase the academic alignment of specific study abroad programs relative to Marquette departments and majors.
By clicking on an academic college below, you'll be directed to education abroad programs which offer courses (i.e., a major, an emphasis or significant area course offerings) in that same academic area.
Please note that you are not necessarily limited to the programs listed below. They are our recommendations based on the curriculum comparison we have done thus far with our partner institutions.
CI is a collaborative initiative between Marquette academic colleges, departments and the Office of International Education (OIE). The goal of this CI project is to fully integrate study abroad programs (i.e., academic, internships and research, and international service learning) into the Marquette four-year experience. This includes "course mapping" of the Marquette degree program curriculum with strategic study abroad programs.
If your department is interested in integrating your curriculum with study abroad, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Study abroad provides an invaluable opportunity for students to study in a different educational environment and gain firsthand exposure to other countries, cultures and societies and their business practices.
At the same time, in most programs students will have an opportunity to strengthen their foreign language skills, leading to a more marketable business degree. The Office of International Business Studies offers Marquette business students a variety of study abroad programs. Study abroad is possible in a full academic year, a semester or a summer program through one or more of our partner universities or through one of our short-term study tours administered by our faculty. For more information, please attend one or more of our Study Abroad Information Sessions that are held each semester to provide a comprehensive overview of the programs and the application requirements.
