Program Notes
Note: Programs may open for applications before May 1, 2021. Please check program pages regularly or follow @UDGlobal on Instagram or Twitter for updated information on applying for a 22W study abroad program.

Traveling and studying abroad during a global pandemic poses new challenges and requires accepting a higher level of uncertainty than in the past. Students who choose to study abroad at this time must be prepared to adapt to the evolving situation and must take responsibility to act in accordance with the rules, regulations, and recommendations of UD, their program leadership, and legal authorities of their home and host country. Due to the rapidly changing and unpredictable global and local response to COVID-19, these rules, regulations and recommendations are subject to change at any time.

The University will continue to monitor the ongoing situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus) as we approach the departure date for this program. Please reach out to your program coordinator or faculty director with questions and continue to monitor the UD coronavirus webpage for updates.

If UD decides to cancel a study abroad program, we will communicate directly with affected students. In this case, the University of Delaware will reimburse the cost of program fees, tuition and flights (if purchase was advised by CGPS).
Program Description
Study public policy, planning and development in the Southern European island nation of Malta, a island nation known for its warm and hospitable Mediterranean climate, unique history at the crossroads of Asia, Europe and Northern Africa. Students will also enjoy the rich culture, scenic coastal and marine environment, modern and ancient architecture side by side.

Based at University of Malta, you’ll interact with the university community, government officials, US interests operating in the country and multilateral representatives of the European Union, the Commonwealth and others as you study contemporary policy issues related to Malta's island character. In addition, you’ll learn about environmental and energy issues, geography and physical planning and economic development through visits to various government offices, natural and historical heritage sites, local business and industry operations. This winter session program typically takes a variety of excursions including the local markets, indigenous villages, cultural shows and marine expeditions.

Students reside in double and single rooms in the university campus dormitories, with breakfast and lunch provided and group dinner excursions to enjoy local cuisine arranged.

Whether you’re interested in the governance dynamics of the smallest member of the European Union, impact of climate change, refugee migration to the island or sightseeing in a place where ancient civilizations of three continents met and still do, the Winter Session in Malta is your chance to experience Mediterranean culture.

The Program Fee includes housing in shared hotel rooms, all program-related events and excursions, some meals, in-country transportation, and international medical insurance.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare to/from Malta. Those accepted to the program will receive detailed information on airfare and how tickets will be purchased.
