Scott Fitzsimmons at University of Malta
Monday, March 27, 2023

Assistant Dean for Academic Affairs Scott Fitzsimmons undertook an Erasmus+ teaching visit to the Department of International Affairs at the University of Malta in March 2023. As Europe’s premier international exchange program, Erasmus+ offers educators the opportunity to gain professional development and cultural immersion through teaching and learning in a different country. The University of Malta is an excellent destination for this type of visit, given its vibrant academic community and strategic location in the heart of the Mediterranean. During the visit, he had the chance to share his expertise on international organizations, theories of international relations, military alliances, collective security, and Donald Trump’s negotiating style as well as strengthen links between the Universities of Limerick and Malta and interact with students from a diverse range of countries. The trip proved to be a valuable and enriching experience for all involved.
