The Netherlands
CIEE Urban Planning and Society Program in Groningen, Netherlands

Did you know - in this "World Cycling City," nearly 60 percent of journeys are by bike? The city has created a huge network of segregated bike paths and great public transportation – a great example of how urban planners work to meet society's needs, and a case study you'll explore with CIEE! In this active city, you'll take part in engaging discussions, group-project work, applied learning activities in the field, and so much more.

Study abroad in Groningen and you'll:


  • Interpret complex case studies within the fields of human geography, planning, and environmental sustainability
  • Understand how the Dutch deal with economic, environmental, and settlement challenges within the context of increasing levels of globalization
  • Analyze the complexities of contemporary life in the Netherlands
  • Begin to study or improve your Dutch language skills
