ABOUT THIS PROGRAM

The Department of Spanish and Portuguese offers a foreign study program in Madrid, Spain.  The program includes courses in art history, contemporary Spanish history, language, and literature taught by members of the faculty of the Universidad Complutense and the Dartmouth professor. The University, one of the oldest in Europe, has a large central campus with extensive facilities and a distinguished faculty, as well as many opportunities for exchange between Dartmouth students and their Spanish counterparts.  Madrid, capital of Spain since 1561, is a major cosmopolitan city whose wealth of architectural monuments and historical associations, museums and centers for theater, music, and the arts make it an exciting place for the study of Spanish culture past and present. 

The principal objective is an in-depth experience of the life and culture of contemporary Spain. This goal is approached through the substantive courses as well as through the homestay and social interaction with Spaniards.

THE STUDY ABROAD EXPERIENCE

STUDENT LIFE

Students live with homestay families.  

In addition to a full academic schedule, the term abroad includes a week-long break for travel within the Iberian peninsula and opportunities for group excursions to sites of artistic and natural beauty.

For more information, please see the Spanish and Portuguese Department website.

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.

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.
