University College Maastricht’s Teun Dekker first European Professor of Liberal Arts and Sciences Education!

On 1 July 2017, Prof. Teun Dekker became the first Professor in Liberal Arts and Sciences Education in Europe. His main duties will be creating public awareness of Liberal Arts in the Netherlands and abroad, and conducting research on Liberal Arts education in the European context as well as its social, political and educational significance.

We met with Prof. Dekker to get a better understanding of his professorship and his vision on what Liberal Arts and Sciences is and why it is important.
