Electives in the Bachelor 2019-2020


In periods 1, 2 and 3 of the 3rd-year of the Bachelor, students at the Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience (FPN) are given the opportunity to take electives. It may consists of four (4) independent elective courses offered by FPN,  or a combination of related courses, a so-called Minor. Alternatively, you can take courses or minor programs outside FPN, for example at other faculties of Maastricht University, or at other Universities. 

FPN students have to obtain a total of 24 European credits (ECTS) for their elective program. All electives offered at FPN are awarded 6 ECTS. 

Grades obtained for FPN electives are not used in the calculation of the GPA.  This also applies to non-FPN students.
