Dartmouth is nationally recognized as an outstanding college in which to study language and literature. The Department of French and Italian has traditionally taken a lead in efforts to initiate students to other cultures. We are one of the largest foreign literature departments relative to undergraduate population in the United States. A wide array of courses is offered, from beginning language to surveys of literature to single-topic advanced seminars. Students may elect either a major or a minor through the department. A total of eleven term-long study programs take place in France and Italy every year; students consistently cite these programs, well-established and run so as to mesh with their on-campus courses, as high points in their Dartmouth careers.
