Dartmouth College

Dartmouth College

Dartmouth is an institution that is small enough to provide all of our students with direct access to world-class faculty, staff, and resources, yet large enough to have the infrastructure and expertise that marks the world's greatest universities.  Nestled on the border of New Hampshire and Vermont, and bounded by a river and mountains, a profound sense of place informs Dartmouth’s profound sense of purpose with signature programs in environmental studies, Native American studies, foreign languages and international studies, public policy, computer science, and human-centered engineering. Dartmouth adheres to a unique, quarterly calendar known as the “D-Plan” that delivers its liberal arts curriculum via four 10-week terms that invites students to design an individualized course of study.
