The Brandeis in The Hague semester program is an intensive academic experience open to students in all fields of study. It covers a wide range of global concerns, combining classroom study and immersion in the human rights networks associated with this famous “International City of Peace and Justice.”
Students will take a full 16-credit course load that will include academic classes and an experiential practicum. Courses are taught by Brandeis faculty and by faculty partners from the University of Leiden. Students will visit the major international tribunals sitting in The Hague, and will participate in projects that open up a wide field of policy issues: ethnic conflict, national and regional reconciliation, economic development, environmental protection, social rights, and responsive governance. These projects will encourage students to draw on prior interests in areas of history, culture, ethics, science, and the arts.
Students can apply directly through the Office of Study Abroad for admission into the Brandeis in The Hague program. Applications are reviewed on a rolling admissions basis until the closing deadline. Students are encouraged to apply well before the admissions deadline. Qualified applicants will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis, so applying early is to everyone’s advantage. Applications will be reviewed up until the deadline, provided spaces are still available.
Non-Brandeis students are encouraged to check with their home institution regarding study abroad policies and procedures.
Brandeis students interested in learning more about (other) study abroad scholarship opportunities should visit the scholarship section of the Brandeis study abroad website.
