Dartmouth is among the top schools in the nation for study abroad, with more than half of undergraduates participating before they graduate. Dartmouth offers more than 40 programs in 24 countries covering six continents. (Scroll down to see the list.) The flexibility of the year-round D-Plan offers many students, including Division I athletes, the opportunity to study abroad.
Dartmouth faculty members help design, develop, and lead the programs offered by more than 20 academic departments. Language Study Abroad programs (LSAs) are sponsored by language departments, Foreign Study Programs (FSPs) are focused on both language and non-language disciplines, and Exchange Programs (EPs) are administered by (but not led by) Dartmouth faculty members.
The programs include:
