Dutch (Netherlandic), Minor
The Dutch-speaking Low Countries (the Netherlands and part of Belgium) are a unique cultural community of about 22 million speakers in North-Western Europe. The names of famous Dutch artists readily come to mind: Rembrandt, Rubens, Breughel, Van Eyck, Mondriaan, as do some of the cities where they lived: Amsterdam, Brussels, Leyden, Maastricht. But artists do not flourish in a vacuum. Each of these artists assumes a cultural, political, economic, and historical context that is worthy of study in its own right. The resources in Dutch Studies at Penn offer students and faculty the ability to learn more about:
- The Dutch Economy
- The Dutch Language
- The Netherlands and Belgium During the Nazi Occupation
- The Literature and Culture of the Dutch Colonial Period
Intensive Summer study in Zeist or Gent can also count toward Minor requirements.
