At Maastricht Science Programme, we introduce a new approach to education in the natural sciences that is based on the Liberal Arts and Sciences tradition. Gone are the conventional disciplinary boundaries. We challenge you to create your own curriculum, chosen from a wide range of disciplines, guided by advisors and driven by your own skills, interests and ambitions.

Do you want to focus on one discipline and become an expert in that specific field or do you prefer to combine disciplines and work on multidisciplinary knowledge and skills? Everything is possible at Maastricht Science Programme.

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

Maastricht Science Programme in short:

  • MSP is a Liberal Arts & Science College
  • Open curriculum, choose from more than 100 courses in the field of biology, chemistry, physics, math en more
  • Access to state-of-the art laboratoria 
  • Use our facilities of for example the Einstein Telescope Pathfinder, the Maastricht University Medical Centre of the labs at the Chemelot Campus.
