College Is Third In The Nation For Study Abroad

Dartmouth ranks third in the nation among doctoral degree granting institutions in undergraduate study abroad, with a participation rate of 60.9 percent. That ranking is up seven spots from last year's report from the Institute of International Education (IIE), which tracks the data and issues it annually in its Open Doors report. Of the other Ivies, only the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton, and Harvard made the list, with participation rates of 34.2, 30.8, and 28.7 percent, ranking 28th, 34th, and 40th, respectively.

"Dartmouth is unique among our peers, not only because of our extremely high participation rates and the length, depth, and variety of our offerings, but also because our extensive programs have been in operation for 50 years," says Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences Carol Folt. "Moreover, all of our 48 programs are led by Dartmouth faculty, ensuring that the academic quality of study abroad remains as high as our on-campus offerings."
