Program Notes
Note: Programs may open for applications before June 1, 2021. Please check program pages regularly or follow @UDGlobal on Instagram or Twitter for updated information on applying for a 22W study abroad program.

Traveling and studying abroad during a global pandemic poses new challenges and requires accepting a higher level of uncertainty than in the past. Students who choose to study abroad at this time must be prepared to adapt to the evolving situation and must take responsibility to act in accordance with the rules, regulations, and recommendations of UD, their program leadership, and legal authorities of their home and host country. Due to the rapidly changing and unpredictable global and local response to COVID-19, these rules, regulations and recommendations are subject to change at any time.

The University will continue to monitor the ongoing situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus) as we approach the departure date for this program. Please reach out to your program coordinator or faculty director with questions and continue to monitor the UD coronavirus webpage for updates.

If UD decides to cancel a study abroad program, we will communicate directly with affected students. In this case, the University of Delaware will reimburse the cost of program fees, tuition and flights (if purchase was advised by CGPS).
Program Description
Study Environmental Literature in The Netherlands, a global leader in responding to climate change. Students will enjoy national parklands, on the inland Wadden Sea, and on the barrier islands between the Wadden and North Seas. They will experience the diverse and welcoming culture of the Dutch while considering The Netherlands' response to climate change and sea level rise.

Based in Arnhem, Leeuwarden, and Amsterdam, students will interact with national park research scientists, conservation organization leaders, and organic farmers as you study nonfiction texts relating to climate change in the US and The Netherlands. In addition, students will learn about northern Europe's forest and species management at Hogue Veluwe and Veluwezoom National Parks, and coastal and wetland management through visits to UNESCO World Heritage Site Wadden Sea the Zuid-Kennemeland National Park. Possible excursions include a sailing expedition on the Wadden Sea (migratory birds, Humpback and Minke whales, seals, porpoise, and dolphins); a visit to Natuurmonumenten Conservation's headquarters in, and a visit to an organic farm through the World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms Organization.


Whether you’re interested in environmental issues, literature, or spending time outdoors, the Winter Session in The Netherlands is your chance to experience land- and water-focused conservation efforts in a country almost entirely at or below sea level.

The Program Fee includes transfers in the Netherlands, hotel accommodations in double or triple rooms, daily breakfasts, all excursions, international medical insurance and some additional meals.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare to/from the Netherlands, nor airport transfers within the U.S. The program officially begins when students arrive in the Leeuwarden. Students will receive detailed travel instructions after acceptance, explaining how and where to purchase their plane ticket. See the Cost section below for estimate airfare. For this program, students will be given recommended flight itineraries for traveling together.
ACCESSIBILITY: Students with disabilities are welcomed and encouraged to study abroad, but should be aware that accessibility and accommodation in some program locations may differ from the United States.
