Abroad Education Home


There are many programs for summer. Below mentioned are some of the universities that have high range of summer study abroad programs.

Marquette University
Marquette University, private, coeducational institution in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The university is affiliated with the Society of Jesus (Jesuits). It is named after Jacques Marquette, a 17th-century French Jesuit missionary and explorer of the American Midwest. In 1848 John Henni, Milwaukee’s first Roman Catholic bishop, invited the Jesuits to establish a college there. Marquette College was chartered in 1864 and began classes in 1881. The charter was amended in 1907, giving the school full university status, and the present name was adopted.

The university comprises colleges of arts and sciences, business administration, communication, health sciences, nursing, and engineering; schools of dentistry, education, law, and a graduate school; and programs in dental hygiene, medical laboratory technology, and physical therapy. Continuing education, part-time studies, and summer classes also are offered. The university enrolls about 11,000 students. Associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s, doctoral, and professional degrees are conferred.

Marquette University is home to more than 30 research centers, institutes, and laboratories, including the Center for the Study of Entrepreneurship, the Aspin Center for Government, the Institute of Urban Life, the Center for Industrial Processes and Productivity, the Water Quality Center, the Materials Science and Technology Center, and the Microwave Engineering Research Laboratory.

Colorado State University
Colorado State University, public, coeducational institution in Fort Collins, Colorado. The school was founded as the Agricultural College of Colorado in 1870, six years before Colorado became a state (see Colorado: Statehood). In 1879 the Colorado legislature designated the school a federal land-grant college. That year the institution also established the Colorado Agricultural Experiment Station, a center for agricultural research and education, and the Cooperative Extension, a statewide continuing-education program. Today both programs remain in operation. The school adopted the name Colorado State University in 1957.

Colorado State University confers bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees in the arts and sciences, humanities, the health professions, engineering, and environmental design. The school’s programs in agricultural science, forestry, biochemistry, and business are particularly strong.

Colorado State University’s main campus covers 170 hectares (421 acres). The school also maintains Pingree Park, a 482-hectare (1,192-acre) park that is used for conferences, environmental education, and summer camps. The park is located 89 km (55 mi) west of Fort Collins and borders Rocky Mountain National Park. Other facilities located off the main campus include an environmental learning center and agricultural research and development center. Graduates of Colorado State University include Colorado Governor Roy Romer, astronaut Mary Clever, and actor Keith Carradine.
