Public transport will take you to the town’s many attractions in minutes, and to Amsterdam in an hour and a half. And everyone speaks English! We will experience the annual introductory week for new Wageningen freshmen that includes a movie night, street theater, comedy night, and more. Class excursions include visits to centuries-old towns; museums on science, art, and the Netherlands’ ongoing fight against rising water; botanical gardens; and local research labs studying the subjects from our class. These field trips will showcase some of the ways this small country was and is great and what scientific research means in the Netherlands.
