Fall 2019 Courses

Choosing your courses for Luxembourg

Students register for all courses on a first come, first served basis, just as when registering normally at Miami. Classes have a 17-25 person cap, so it is recommended that students select second and third choices in the event that their first choices are full. Each semester we hold a mandatory Registration Info Session the week prior to registration to review the Luxembourg course requirements, to offer some tips and tricks for the day of registration, and to answer any lingering questions. We also strongly advise students to talk to their Academic Advisor prior to scheduling.

All Luxembourg students must register for a minimum of 16 credit hours.

Things to consider

We strongly recommend you consult your Academic Advisor when selecting your courses. Here are some questions you will want to consider to ensure you are getting the most out of your semester in Luxembourg.

  • Are any of your major/minor courses offered in Luxembourg this semester? If not, would an independent study be a viable option to get credit for your major/minor?
  • You can also take one online course as part of your 16 credit hour minimum, if there is one offered in your major/minor.
  • Do you need Global Perspectives? GP can double dip with any courses in Luxembourg with the exception of courses being counted in other Miami Plan Foundation requirements.
  • If you have earned 2 semesters of college credit (or equivalent AP credit at the 4 or 5 level) for any European (EU) language, the language requirement may be waived. You will be required to complete a language petition form and provide proof of the earned credits with an unofficial transcript or DAR submission to Assistant Dean Raymond Manes at manesr@miamioh.edu. You can still take a language course even if you are eligible to petition out of it.
  • If needed, business students are guaranteed either MGT 291L or MKT 291L, but they are not guaranteed both. Being able to take both courses depends on how many business students are enrolled in any given semester and how many other students need to take those courses. We do, however, encourage you to let us know if you need both courses to stay on track to graduation.
