A WARM WELCOME to our new and returning undergraduates. We've already begun to receive inquiries about our undergraduate internship and for-credit academic exchange programs. The internship program, fully funded by the American University of Kuwait, offers four internships each academic year, two in a Fall quarter and two in a Spring quarter. For more information, please look under the "Students" tab on this website, which also contains narratives from previous Dartmouth participants. The for-credit program managed under the auspices of our Middle East Studies department, is described here - Guarini Institute - and is offered every Fall quarter.

Students majoring or minoring in Middle Eastern studies, anthropology and related fields, or interested in experiencing the liberal arts in a non-Western environment will find these programs a welcome complement to their on-campus experience at Dartmouth.

Information sessions, either in person or via Zoom, will be held in January 2021. (These offerings are contingent on health conditions and travel restrictions in both New Hampshire and Kuwait.)

AUK students come to Dartmouth during the summer quarter.  Here are Leena El Hawary, Dima Jadayel and Omar Matar enjoying the view on Mt. Ascutney in 2018.
