We encourage students in Dutch Studies to explore the possibilities for a Study Abroad experience through the UC Education Abroad Program. In the Netherlands, semester and year programs with course work in English are offered in Utrecht, Maastricht, Leiden, and Wageningen. In Belgium, a field research & internship semester in Brussels is offered. Course work is in French. However, students benefit from intensified Dutch instruction during the preparatory period, and can request to be placed in Dutch-language professional environments in the Brussels region if they wish. Placements may also be in work environments where Dutch is practiced alongside French and/or English for students who are not ready to function fully in Dutch. UCEAP coursework and credits may count towards the Dutch Studies minor and major requirements.
