The Religion Foreign Study Program offers an expanded curriculum in the study of religion through its arrangement with New College of the University of Edinburgh. Also available is the opportunity to study with internationally eminent scholars who teach in this major Scottish university.
The program of study in Edinburgh consists of three courses: two to three courses chosen by each student from among those offered by the Faculty of Theology and Program in Religious Studies at New College, given the Dartmouth designations Religion 70, 71 and 72, and Religion 74, taught by the accompanying Dartmouth faculty member and available to (and sometimes required of) all participants. All three courses are graded. With regard to fulfilling the requirements for the major, Religion 70, 71, 72 and 74 count as intermediate courses.
Applications must be submitted by February 1 and applicants must have a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.0.
It is hoped that, beyond their own courses, students will attend a wide variety of public lectures offered at the University of Edinburgh and elsewhere in this historic capital of Scotland, one of the well-known centers for learning in the world.
Religion 70: Foreign Study in Religion I
Religion 71: Foreign Study in Religion II
Religion 74: Special Topics in Religion -- Intermediate Level
For Fall Term 2014: Religion 74: Harry Potter, Myth, Magic, and Religion
Students have a choice of living in University of Edinburgh residence halls or University apartments.
