Rich resources in Amsterdam allow students to follow Van Gogh's development through a study of his paintings. At the Rijksmuseum, masterpieces of the Dutch Golden Age highlight influences in his early years. A visit to the Rembrandt House Museum underscores the spiritual and artistic impact of Rembrandt throughout Van Gogh’s life. In the Van Gogh Museum, students can observe the changes produced by the artist’s contact with Seurat, Gauguin, and Cezanne. The Stedelijk Museum provides the class with an opportunity to see how Van Gogh has influenced painting in the 20th and 21st centuries.
May apply toward upper- or lower-level credit for art history, humanities, or electives.

A field study course packs all of the 48 contact-hours of other courses into adventure-filled days on location, so you can earn one to three credits at an accelerated pace. In addition, rather than taking place in an education center, a field study course takes place in a historical European city where the subject being studied has its roots. You will visit historical sites and museums as well as participate in lectures that bring it all together for a one-of-a-kind learning experience.
