Maastricht Courses - 2020 Summer

Summer Session I has been cancelled due to CDC and State Department advisory levels.  A decision regarding Summer Session II will be made mid-April. Please check back here for updates.

Studying abroad can be a more meaningful and invigorating learning experience than at home—both inside and outside of the classroom. You may be more curious and alert than you usually are so use this heightened energy to enhance your studies as well as your cultural and geographical explorations. You may also encounter different teaching styles and course processes; be prepared to adapt and to learn.
