Winter 2025 in Luxembourg

A shorter version of the renowned MUDEC experience, the Winter 2025 in Luxembourg is an ideal choice for students who may not have the opportunity to study for a semester in Luxembourg. The six-credit-hour program offers courses in various disciplines that can be used for a Global Perspectives or other Miami Plan Foundation requirements in only six to seven weeks.

  • Classes typically meet Monday through Thursday (although some Fridays may be required.) One 6-day (5-night) faculty-led study tour is embedded in the program.
  • There are no prerequisites for these courses, and students must take both courses.
  • Most students live in a European homestay and therefore have an inside view of the local culture. They have the opportunity to interact with local people and learn about everyday life in Luxembourg.

As part of the experience, students also take a 5-7 day trip to a European location known as a study tour. This hands-on experience complements the content learned in the classroom by allowing students the opportunity to visit the places they are learning about and to see it with their own eyes! Students planning to go in Winter 2025 will visit Croatia on a week-long study tour, exploring the topics of world politics in Europe.


  • POL 271: World Politics
    • Introduction to international politics, with emphasis on factors and processes producing harmony and conflict in interactions within the international system.
    • This course counts towards Global Perspectives or Pillars 1-4 Under the new Miami Plan.
  • LUX 101: European Experience
    • This course will introduce vocabularies of "culture" and intercultural engagement. This class will engage in discussions that help students to practice new intercultural skills, and to strengthen those skills through personalized European experiences.
