Program Overview

London_EngThe London FSP is located at King’s College, London, a highly prestigious university that boasts one of the world’s finest and most forward thinking English departments. King’s is at the heart of central London, just steps from the Thames and short walks from a staggering range of cultural attractions: the National Galleries and West End theaters; the Tate Modern, the Tower and the Globe; St. Paul’s and Westminster Abbey. The location allows, uniquely, for students to enhance their course of study through trips to museums, libraries and theaters, as well as the neighborhoods in which Shakespeare and Dickens, Woolf and Plath, Wilde and Shaw, Zadie Smith and Salman Rushdie lived and wrote. London is a vibrant contemporary and cosmopolitan center, one whose literary richness has helped attract English speaking immigrants from numerous countries while exerting influence on colonial and post-colonial writers all over the globe.

Academics

Faculty Director
2016 Fall:  Professor Thomas Luxon
2017 Fall:  Professor Monika Otter

Students will take two classes of their choice at King’s, as well as a third class from the FSP Director that will likely reflect both the director’s background and the unique possibilities that London provides. Students will also work on independent projects that may further inform the curriculum and discussions in the third course. The King’s English faculty is extremely wide-ranging in its interests, so we expect students to find attractive options not only to read canonical authors, but also to explore Anglophone literature from other cultures, whether rooted in London or not, and possibly to undertake research within relevant international London communities.

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. A budget sheet for this program will soon be available via this web page. 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.
