The University of Deusto was founded in 1886. In 1916, the "Universidad Comercial deDeusto" received the first group of students which would be the first graduates in Economic Sciences in Spain, 25 years before this degree was officially recognized. In 1963, the Institute of Graduate and Technical Studies of Guipuzcoa in San Sebastian was formed by the integration of three already-existing entities. This institute, years later, would form a part of the University of Deusto.
The University of Deusto is well known for its capacity in the social sciences and humanities, in particular law, economics and business administration, education and psychology as well as sociology and social work, culture and tourism, languages and communication, international studies and theology. Furthermore, the faculty of engineering includes a wide and solid range of options: industrial and electrical engineering, information technology, automated and electronic engineering and industrial organization. Deusto offers top quality courses including five internationally renowned Erasmus Mundus Master programs in humanitarian action, Euroculture, lifelong learning, governance and local development, and regional health systems as well as two European Doctoral programs in migration and diversities and in peace and conflict.
Universidad de Deusto offers courses in several academic areas. These courses are subject to change. Business students considering this program should meet with an advisor in the Office of International Business Studies (College of Business Administration, David Straz Hall 101) to initially evaluate course options. Once a student is accepted to study abroad, s/he will meet with an International Business Studies advisor to approve courses. Please note that the classes often change: it is the student’s responsibility to remain in direct contact with the Office of International Business Studies to request changes or updates. Grades do not transfer to Marquette University for this program. Only credits will transfer provided that a grade of “C” or higher is earned.
Students are housed in off-campus apartments. These are shared with other students.

San Sebastian is regarded by many as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Located on the Bay of Biscay, the San Sebastian coast and its surrounding environment (where the sea and mountain merge) are wonderful places to visit. The bay, with La Concha beach and the artistic sculpture called El Peine del Viento (the Wind's Comb) by sculptor Eduardo Chillida and architect Peña Ganchegui, are its main landmarks. The city's urban development is based on painstaking protection of its green areas and parks. Most key places of interest can be easily reached on foot, strolling along its promenades and pedestrian walkways, or by bike along a network of 'bidegorris' (cycle lanes).
San Sebastian is a cultural and artistic center with a wide range of services and congresses. The Kursaal is the main venue for the San Sebastian International Film Festival, the only Spanish film festival of such a high standard and one of the most prestigious in Europe, held in September every year. The 'Jazzaldia' or Jazz Festival and the 'Musical Fortnight' music festival are some of its most important cultural events. The city's main traditional feast, known as the 'Tamborrada', is held on the night of the 19th to 20th January every year.
