Dutch Studies

Dutch and Flemish Studies at the University of Michigan

The roots of the University of Michigan's Dutch and Flemish studies Program can be traced back to the immediate aftermath of World War Two. Since then, it has grown to become a major resource for the dissemination and study of dutch and Flemish culture for U-M students, the State of Michigan, and beyond.
Our Curriculum

In addition to a strong, four-semester language sequence, our course offerings include classes on Anne Frank, an undergraduate honors seminar entitled "Dutch Colonialism and its Aftermath," and a variety of independent studies. Dutch and Flemish Studies enjoys good relations with many other units at the University of Michigan, including Linguistics, Art History, History, South and South East Asian Studies, and Political Science.
