ABOUT THIS PROGRAM

The French and Italian Department offers a foreign study program in Paris, France. The program provides students the opportunity to study French language, literature, and civilization at an advanced level. Special courses in advanced grammar and stylistics, modern French literature, art history and modern history and politics are taught by French faculty and the Dartmouth faculty director.

The program aims to expose students to French culture and society through classroom study and readings, excursions and site visits, personal contact with families and firsthand experience with French. Students are expected to converse fluently with French people and to write on a variety of cultural topics with an accurate command of French vocabulary and idiom. Students will gain a perspective on their own culture through intimate experience with and understanding of French culture.

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 this program by clicking on the appropriate term: fall or winter or spring. The cost of transportation to and from the site is the responsibility of the student.

Financial Aid

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.
