Program Description

Baylor’s Maastricht Summer program is open to all majors and lasts from mid May to mid August.  It combines a rigorous academic regimen with generous travel opportunities.  Applicants must have a 3.0 GPA and completed 30 credit hours by the time they depart for Europe.  Each participant takes one course from the program director, plus one course taught by a Dutch professor in English, for a total of 6 credit hours.  No knowledge of a foreign language is required or assumed. 

Students must apply and pay any applicable deposits by January 15 of the year they plan to go in order to enjoy all program-related benefits.  Since space is limited to 20 participants and demand high, students should apply as early as possible to secure a place in the program and to avoid taking courses in Waco that are also offered in Europe, as the repertoire of courses in Maastricht is quite limited.  Between January 15 and March 1 additional students may be admitted to the program on a case-by-case basis provided (1) there is available space, (2) all admission criteria outlined above is met, (3) a non-refundable deposit of $2,000 is paid immediately, and (4) a reservation form is completed and turned in to Millennium Tours for a space on the flight with the group.
