Maastricht Courses – 2023 Summer

If you have questions about the academics or courses available on this program, locate the Program Advisor to email them your questions directly.

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.


USAC's partnership with Maastricht University allows you to focus your studies on the economic, political and socio-cultural aspects of Europe and European integration, as well as health, science and psychology-related fields. All classes are taught in English and include exciting hands-on experiences such as field trips, museum visits, and seminars on location. The program is split into two 3-week instructional blocks. Students will take one course in each block. You will earn 12 ECTS (6 U.S. credits) from Maastricht University on this six-week program.
