Spring 2009 CCV Study Abroad: Amsterdam

Did you know that CCV's spring '09 Comparative Religion class (PHI-2010-VO01) will include a study abroad trip from May 15 - 24 to Amsterdam!?

By experiencing the architecture and artifacts of many faiths, walking in the footsteps of the Nazi invasion of Amsterdam, and having access to the Eastern religious houses of worship of immigrant populations, students will have a unique opportunity to contrast a European perspective on religion and society with common American views. They will also be able to experience the authentic foods associated with the religions and cultures, as Amsterdam is home to Hindu, Sikh, Chinese, Indonesian, kosher Jewish, Persian and African restaurants.

Highlights of the time in The Netherlands include:

  • Visits to the Museum Amstelkring, the Jewish Historical Museum, the Bijbels Museum, and the Rijksmuseum
  • Visits to the first genuine Chinese Buddhist temple in Western Europe as well as to the Radha Krishna Mandir Hindu Temple
  • A walking tour of Amsterdam and visit to the Anne Frank Huis
  • A day trip to the Islamic University of Rotterdam
The course includes five online sessions on March 9 & 23, April 6 & 20, and May 25, as well as one on-ground meeting May 2, 10 am - 3 pm, at CCV Upper Valley.

The course fee of $3197 includes group flight to and from Boston, breakfasts and some lunches, lodging, transportation, and entry fees.
