May 20, 2019 - Sixteen King’s College students and two faculty members will participate in an intensive two-week study abroad experience through Belgium and the Netherlands during late May to mid-June.

Under the leadership of Dr. Beth Admiraal of the College’s political science department and Dr. Regan Reitsma of the philosophy department and Honor Program, the program will focus on the democracy, justice and rights of the two countries.  The students will also acquire a meaningful understanding of the issues surrounding the minority populations of the countries, including longstanding minority groups, immigrant populations from contemporary times, and refugees from the last decade.
