Stroll along the medieval canals of Bruges. Reflect on the bloody history of the Second World War at Flanders Field. Learn about European politics in the heart of NATO and the EU, and in the international business capital of the world. Sink your teeth into a decadent meal of professionally prepared Belgian food.
Do all this and more on the Belgium Between Empires study abroad program.
Spend two weeks on this summer 2017 course traveling throughout Belgium and into the Netherlands, learning about the history and culture of Belgium and how it has been defined by its relationship to its much larger neighbors.
This course can count as HIST 2990 or INST 4140 and has no prerequisites. In addition to being an appealing option for history and international studies, those with an interest in art history, architecture, government, political science, or literature may also find this program particularly attractive.
The program will begin in Brussels and travel to Flanders, Ghent, and Bruges in Belgium before concluding in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Program highlights include time spent in two medieval cities, a full day tour of Flanders Field, guided tours by US officials of NATO and the EU Parliament, and a one-month Belgian rail pass that students can make use of after the program concludes.
