- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

The program is designed for students who want to complete their Thematic Sequence or their Global Perspective requirements in only 6-7 weeks. Two faculty-led study tours will complement in-class learning and students will have the opportunity to participate in local community outreach activities. The courses are designed for practically all majors and may fulfill an MPF requirement and/or a thematic sequence.

The Miami University Dolibois European Center (MUDEC) is housed in a 15th century castle situated in a beautiful park at the center of Differdange, Luxembourg's third largest city.  Historic atmosphere with contemporary facilities including upgraded classrooms, student lounge, library, computer room, study rooms, kitchenette and laundry area.  Because of MUDEC's central location, students are able to easily discover the great  cultural, political, and economic centers of Europe.

Advantages of studying abroad through Miami's Luxembourg program:
  • During this intensive 6-7 week program, students will complete 9 credit hours, keeping them on track for graduation.
  • Miami operates its own facility: a beautiful castle with historic features, plus the latest technology.
  • Costs are reasonable since students pay Miami's public-school tuition and fees.
  • Living with a host family allows students to be immersed into European cultures.
  • The summer program includes two faculty-guided field study tours.
  • Because the Center is considered Miami's "fourth campus", all grades and credits apply to Miami's graduation requirements, Miami students may complete a Miami Plan Thematic Sequence and 3 credit hours towards the Global Perspectives (MP Foundation III) requirement during the program, or complete the entire Global Perspectives requirement.  
  • Students from partner universities may transfer credits to their home institution.
  • Opportunities for Honors and Scholars students. Students should consult the Honors or Scholars Program for more information.
