Anthropology FSP AucklandAuckland, New Zealand
ABOUT THIS PROGRAM
The Department of Anthropology and the Program in Linguistics offer a joint foreign study program in Auckland, New Zealand. The program is a seven-week intensive summer term at the University of Auckland in the Departments of Anthropology and Maori Studies with an additional two weeks of coursework with the Dartmouth faculty director.
Auckland is the largest city in New Zealand, with a culturally diverse population of 1.5 million people.
The University of Auckland is an internationally recognized center for the study of Pacific archaeology, cultural anthropology, biological anthropology, and linguistics, and is a leading institution in the comparative study of Indigeneity.
THE STUDY ABROAD EXPERIENCE
Two courses in Anthropology, one of which must be in Cultural Anthropology.
In the Anthropology program, students initially live on campus and move to homestays in Auckland. The on campus student accommodation is a short walk from the center of campus and the city center. During the homestay component, students live with families across the greater Auckland area and commute to campus on public transportation.
Highlights of the program typically include places relevant to Maori history and culture, a trip to a Maori meeting house, a workshop on kapa haka, and an overnight stay in Rotorua.

Financing Your Program
Tuition and Fees
The fees charged by the College for a Dartmouth-sponsored off-campus term of study include regular tuition charges for a term at Dartmouth, service fees, as well as the specific costs established for each off-campus study locale. In many programs, the room and board costs tend to be higher than for a term in Hanover. You can view a budget sheet for each program by clicking on the appropriate term. The cost of transportation to and from the site is the responsibility of the student.
In order that all qualified Dartmouth undergraduate students may have the opportunity to take part in off-campus programs, the College endeavors to adjust its normal financial aid awards for students already receiving aid. Tuition and expected family contribution for Dartmouth's off-campus programs are the same as for an on-campus term. Assistance is available to meet extra costs associated with off-campus programs, including airfare. Half of any extra cost is met with additional Dartmouth scholarship; loan assistance is offered for the other half. Loan assistance is also offered to replace the employment that would normally be included in an on-campus term. Although financial aid recipients are given aid to cover all of the required costs of the program, students are responsible for purchasing their own plane ticket and, on some programs, meals. Often this means that part of the expected family contribution is used towards these costs rather than for tuition.
