Nowhere else in the English-speaking world can Dartmouth students enjoy such a uniquely rich combination of historic and academic resources as is concentrated in London. The city's history over two millenia, its archives, museums, libraries, and built environment allow this program to offer experiences in the study of history that are unavailable on campus.
Students take History 40: "London in History," that surveys the history of the city from its Roman origins through its rise to become one of the world's global capitals of the 21st century. History 41: "History Study Abroad" is an opportunity to join British students in a history course at London's premier university, University College London. History 97: "Independent Field Research," each student's individual research project, is the centerpiece of the program. Using London's abundant resources to explore British, European, American or world history, students have undertaken research in the archives and libraries of the India Office, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Public Records Office, the Society of Friends, the British Film Institute, the Institute of Bankers, and the Imperial War Museum, to name only a few.
