Program description

During your studies you will not only learn Dutch, but you also study the language to gain insight into its structure and development.

Most Dutch-speakers live in the Netherlands and Flanders – the northern part of Belgium – but Dutch is also spoken in Surinam, on Aruba and the other Dutch Antilles. Furthermore, Afrikaans, one of the official languages of South Africa, which is spoken by some six million people, is closely related to Dutch. During your study you not only learn Dutch, but you also study the language to gain insight into its structure and development. Did you know, for example, that such words as ‘cookie’ and ‘boss’ originate from Dutch?

As a student of Dutch Studies, you are not just concerned with the language. In the course of the programme you will also be studying the visual arts of the Low Lands. You will examine Dutch literature, linguists and (art) history. You will acquire all the skills necessary to obtain a full understanding of Dutch culture and society.
