FASoS

Exchange programme

The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASoS) offers a place where scholars with different disciplinary backgrounds - historians, political scientists, literary and arts scholars, sociologists, anthropologists, philosophers and others - are brought together in joint research. This interdisciplinary approach is predominant in our teaching as well; all of our programmes acquaint students with different disciplines and perspectives. All of the faculty’s programmes are taught entirely in English and with 79% of our students and 42% of our staff coming from abroad, FASoS is Maastricht University’s most international faculty. Such diversity creates an atmosphere that strengthens the international orientation of our research and education.

Language requirements

English is the language of instruction in all of our programmes. As the Problem Based Learning method requires active participation in group meetings, it is important that you have a good working knowledge of English. You have to be able to read the required literature, to participate in tutorial group discussions, and to take written and oral examinations. If English is not your native language, you are therefore required to submit a proof of English language proficiency. We recommend the following minimum level: TOEFL iBT 90, IELTS 6.5, or CEF level B2.
