Program Overview

LSEThe Department of Government's program in London is offered in cooperation with the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).

Two course credits are based on regularly scheduled courses at LSE. These courses focus on international relations or comparative politics and are graded by members of the LSE faculty. The third course credit is a seminar taught by the resident Dartmouth faculty member. The topic is typically within the fields of comparative politics or international relations.

Curriculum
Government 90 and 91: Seminars in Government taught by LSE faculty (two units)
A third designated Government course (Government 92) is the seminar offering taught by Dartmouth faculty.

Prerequisites
The London program is not designed for introductory students. Government 4 and Government 5 (or equivalents) serve as prerequisites. Equivalents to substitute for either 4 or 5 must be discussed and approved by the Program Director.  Relevant course work in other departments will also be considered.

Student Life

Students will stay in rooms in an international student dormitory (some cooking privileges) within commuting distance of LSE.  Dartmouth students will have all of the rights, privileges, and responsibilities of LSE students, including library privileges, and access to the student common rooms. Your accommodations will include: All utilities (gas, electricity and water); Bed linen and towels; Access to in house laundry facilities (coin operated); Utensils and kitchen equipment.
 

Financial Information

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 here. 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.
