The Program: In a globally connected world, cultural skills become an indispensable complement to academic schooling. Summer schools allow both for professional and cultural qualifications without interfering with the already tight schedules that usually accompany higher education. Students get to know foreign cultures and societies and become acquainted with novel ways of looking at their respective fields. These skills are vital prerequisites for later careers – be they taken up in the local job market of Basel or internationally.

Academics: UMSL Students may enroll in the summer school at the University of Basel. UMSL tuition applies and students earn UMSL credit. There may be programs at the University that are also fee paying.
