I know everyone says this, but studying abroad changed my life. I was fortunate enough to spend summer 2018 (June - July) in the IES Abroad “Amsterdam Summer - Society, Culture & Gender in Amsterdam” program.

I loved living in a different city for a small time in my life. It was great to get out of my comfort zone and see some exciting, cool new things for more than just a vacation.

I learned how to live and travel on my own, and how to explore new countries! The classes also gave me insights that I can bring back to my home school to help with my own studies. - Yale University View Entire Review

About

Amsterdam, a city long associated with notions of tolerance and openness, is the perfect backdrop against which to study Art History, Literature, and Sociology through the lens of Gender Studies. We invite you to explore Amsterdam's history and present, and to consider how these notions are—or are not—changing.

Amsterdam is your classroom, with course-related excursions to world-class museums and notable Amsterdam sites playing a major role in each course. For example, you will study the representations of gender and sexuality in Rembrandt's work and visit the Anne Frank museum. This program also includes a course-related excursion to Berlin, to further investigate your topics of study.
