Marquette University

As Wisconsins largest private university, Marquette offers endless opportunities: the chance to live, study and play in the heart of a dynamic city; nationally known programs and powerhouse faculty; and a Catholic, Jesuit tradition that emphasizes ethics and lifelong values. For more than 130 years, we have inspired students to Be The Difference in their professional and personal lives. More than 11,000 students come from almost all 50 states and 70 countries to explore options ranging from intense undergraduate studies to specialized graduate and professional programs. The University Core of Common Studies is the intellectual heart of a Marquette undergraduate education, built on our Jesuit tradition and designed for successful life in the 21st century. Based on this foundation in nine essential knowledge areas, students can take advantage of dozens of majors offered through the colleges of Arts and Sciences, Business Administration, Communication, Education, Engineering, Health Sciences, Nursing and Professional Studies. At the graduate level, Marquette has Wisconsins only dental school, as well as a nationally ranked Law School, Graduate School and Graduate School of Management. Marquettes location just west of downtown Milwaukee provides easy access to internship and job opportunities with government agencies, small businesses, Fortune 500 companies and nonprofit institutions. Students can also take advantage of entertainment venues ranging from the Lake Michigan shoreline to the performing arts, ethnic and fine dining, professional sports, and an active nightlife.But your education doesnt need to be limited to Milwaukee. Each year, many Marquette students grab their passports, pack their bags and head off to distant lands to study for a few weeks, a semester or a year. Marquette offers study abroad and exchange program opportunities on every continent but Antarctica. And, if you want to go there, we can probably arrange something for you. If you prefer to stay in the states, Marquettes Les Aspin Center for Government in Washington, D.C., is one of the countrys top legislative internship programs. For a semester or a summer, you can live, learn and work on Capitol Hill. Take an active role in the legislative process while you work as an intern or aide in the House of Representatives, the Senate or various federal agencies. Youll also take special courses and meet with government officials and dignitaries and become well-connected in a city where connections are everything.On campus, with more than 250 student organizations vying for your time, you wont be bored. And because most of our students spend their weekends on campus, theres plenty to do here and around the city. The Raynor Memorial Libraries offer areas for quiet and group study, as well as wireless Internet access and a coffee shop. When students arent studying, you can find them enjoying our two recreation centers and campus green spots. Our students also dont hesitate to get out into the community, and 90 percent of undergraduates participate in service through a wide range of programs, student organizations, service-learning classes and one-day projects. Are you a sports fan? Youre at the right place. Whether youre a big-time intercollegiate athlete or a die-hard spectator, Marquette offers a huge variety of opportunities, including 16 varsity teams that compete in the Big East Conference. If club and recreational sports are more your speed, we have about 50 coed, mens or womens clubs and intramural teams.
