Program Overview

ViennaThe music foreign study program provides an opportunity for students to combine the study of music with an intensive exposure to musical performance while living in Vienna. The program is open to vocalists, instrumentalists, and composers, as well as to students whose focus is on music history, theory, or ethnomusicology.

Courses offered include Music 70: “Perspectives in Music Performance” (taught by the FSP director), which focuses on historical, analytical, and practical aspects of performance, and includes attendance at some thirty public performances;  Music 74: “The History of Music in Central Europe” (taught by a team of local lecturers); and Music 87: “Special Studies in Music Abroad,” consisting of individual lessons. Student musicians will also reap the benefits of a term in Vienna. The opportunity to attend concerts and rehearsals, meet performers and artists, and experience firsthand the vibrant musical traditions of Central Europe offers unique learning opportunities outside the classroom.

Selection will be based on a student’s interest in music as demonstrated by past study and performance ability. Enrollment is limited to 16 students.

The FSP is operated in partnership with IES. IES is one of the nation’s most reputable study abroad providers and is well-known for their continued dedication to health and safety and academic rigor.

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.
