SPECIAL NOTE

Please note, the instruction and study away portion of this program takes place during the winterim period for three weeks in December.  Students should discuss with their Dean how this may impact their fall term course load. Participating in this Fall Term+ course may require additional permission for a 4-course term if you have reached the maximum of 4 terms with a 4-course load.  

ABOUT THIS PROGRAM

The German Studies Department and the Jewish Studies Program offer a joint Fall Term+ program in Berlin, Germany, led by two Dartmouth faculty members, Veronika Fuechtner and Susannah Heschel, who will jointly teach one three-week course between fall term and winter term. 

This innovative course will be an intensive immersion in the history of Jews in Berlin's vibrant intellectual, cultural and political life from the late eighteenth century to the present. The program will meet daily, with tours of major relevant sites in Berlin and the surrounding areas, including museums, concentration camps, neighborhoods, memorials, and houses of worship. The course also includes seminar discussions, evenings at the theater, concerts, lectures, and meetings with political leaders, scholars, writers, musicians, artists, and clergy.

This program will constitute a single course credit during the Fall Term+ period and students will need to be enrolled in 2 or 3 courses during the regular fall term making the total fall term course load 3 or 4 courses.

Students will be required to have completed at least one course in JWST or GERM prior to the trip. They will also be required to participate in three preparatory meetings over the course of the fall quarter prior to their departure in December. 

The first offering is planned for December 2022.

Fall Term+ Tuition & Fees

Please note that the tuition and fees you pay to the college for the fall term will include the Fall Term+ course associated with this off-campus program.  There will be additional room and board costs billed to your student account associated with the off-campus program.  These fees, in addition to any estimated out of pocket expenses will be eligible for financial aid for those students who qualify.

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.

All costs, including airfare and spending money, are considered when determining the cost of an off-campus program. Any costs in excess of a typical term in Hanover are met with additional Dartmouth Scholarship Funds.  Loan assistance is offered to replace the employment that would normally be included in an on-campus term.

Students are responsible for purchasing their own plane ticket and, in many cases, meals. Often this means that part of the expected family contribution is used towards these costs rather than for tuition. For help sorting out who pays what and how, a visit to the Financial Aid Office is often advisable.
