Programmes and Courses Fall

In the fall semester 2016 the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences offers five minor programmes with a study load of 30 ects each. These programmes consist of three coherent courses. They are not only attended by 2nd and 3rd year students from our faculty, but also by students from other faculties with various types of educational backgrounds, thus offering an interesting and very international learning environment!
We strongly advise our incoming exchange students to choose one of the minor programmes.

However, if none of these programmes are of your interest, you can choose courses from the BA European Studies or BA Arts & Culture. But please note that it may not always be possible to obtain 30 ects in one semester.

Please select the programme of your choice and send the course registration form to:
  i.mourmans[at]maastrichtuniversity[dot]nl.

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.
