Maastricht Science Programme

Are you interested in the natural sciences and want to look beyond the boundaries of a single discipline? Or do you want to focus on one discipline and become an expert in that specific field? The Maastricht Science Programme offers you the opportunity to explore the natural sciences and to build a unique academic profile based on your personal interests and ambitions. Every semester, your personal academic advisor guides you in selecting courses from fields as diverse as biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics, neuroscience and various interdisciplinary fields such as biomedical engineering and entrepreneurship. You can focus on a single discipline, or you can combine multiple disciplines in a single degree. Why study sciences in Maastricht?
