Study Abroad and Off-Campus

The Frank J. Guarini Institute for International Education provides leadership and direction for a diverse portfolio of programs. Under the D-plan, off-campus study is possible around the globe, throughout the year.

We lead the nation in the close involvement of college faculty as mentors, designers, and directors of term-length programs offering both international and domestic off-campus study.

Dartmouth offers dozens of programs world-wide led by Dartmouth faculty and managed by the Off-Campus Programs Office. 

Off-Campus Programs

Language Study Abroad (LSA) and Advanced Language Study Abroad (LSA+) programs take you deep into the culture of the language you are learning—alongside Dartmouth classmates and faculty. 

Language Study Abroad

Foreign Study Programs (FSPs) transform the Dartmouth experience, taking it into the heart and home of a field of study: theater in London, environmental studies in southern Africa, or biology in Costa Rica. 

Foreign Study Programs

Exchange programs allow you to spend a term enrolled at one of Dartmouth's partner institutions from Seoul to Milan, San Diego to Atlanta.

Exchange programs

The transfer term process allows up to four credits from an approved institution that is not part of a Dartmouth-run exchange program to be applied to your Dartmouth degree. 

Transfer Term

From building language skills to working abroad, Dartmouth offers meaningful opportunities for international internships and fellowships.

From burning the onions to the many attempts of starting the dish over, we were finally able to "top-off-the-tortilla" the right way. Us learning how to cook reflects our learning experience here in Spain.

The widespread practice of watching a sunset with friends is one of my favorite parts of South African and Namibian culture. Solomon Bang ’19 and I especially enjoyed this “sundowner” in the hyper-arid Namib Desert that served as our playground and class. (Photo by Catherine Rocchi ’19)
