Learning Dutch opens a window to the creative, ethical, and moral debates of our times. Dutch Studies minors will learn to investigate and explore questions such as: How did the Netherlands become a model for the political, social, and economic revolutions that shaped our contemporary world? How has the Dutch-speaking world had such an enormous impact on global business, the politics of health care, environmental policy, international law, the fine arts, and architecture? Opportunities exist for continuing and perfecting your Dutch through further study in the Netherlands or Dutch-speaking Belgium. Dutch studies minors have pursued careers in business, international law and politics, natural resources management, and the arts.
