About the Program

NOTE: LMU EU Studies Summer Program is only available remotely for summer 2021

Programs are available for undergraduate and graduate students. Undergraduate students may participate in the following programs:

  • European Studies
    "Participants gain a broad insight into the historical development and the economic, social, political, and philosophical dimensions of the European integration process as well as into Europe's role as an international political and economic agent." Students have the option to do a non-credit German language class.
  • Middle East Studies
    "Participants gain a broad understanding of the key political, economic, and societal developments in the contemporary Middle East." The program is for "students that have an interest in foreign policy, economic and societal developments. In-depth knowledge of Middle Eastern affairs is not required."

Please indicate which program track you intend to take at LMU MISU in the Statement of Intention section of your Go Global application. If you wish to participate in a different program offered by MISU, please contact Go Global.

Final program details will be published by the partner institution that manages this program and are generally updated on their program webpage. However, you must apply through Go Global to be considered for this program and ensure you follow the appropriate transfer credit process.

For the Middle East Studies program, you will pay tuition directly to the partner institution for this program. 

The partner institution may charge other program fees such as application fees, housing costs, field trips, cultural activities, or other costs associated with hosting this program. Please check the partner webpage for details of program costs.
