The philosophy program offers the opportunity to spend a term at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. Students take a course in philosophy taught by a Dartmouth faculty member (Philosophy 50). In addition, each student will take two university courses from Edinburgh faculty (Philosophy 60, 61). Students participating in the program must have completed two courses in philosophy prior to their participation but not necessarily prior to their application for admission to the program. However, preference will be given to those students who have completed more philosophy courses. A member of the University of Edinburgh philosophy faculty usually offers a course at Dartmouth in the summer term. Students going to Edinburgh should consider taking this course. There will be an opportunity to participate in the junior year honors program while in Edinburgh.
The program provides students with the opportunity to study at one of Great Britain's oldest and finest universities, which has a large and diverse philosophy staff. This staff represents a wide spectrum of diverse approaches to philosophy including both the analytic tradition and the continental tradition. Dartmouth undergraduates should benefit from contact with students doing graduate studies in philosophy. Great Britain has an excellent system of public transportation, so trips to London, Oxford, Cambridge, and other centers of learning can be conveniently arranged.
Applications must be submitted by February 1 and applicants must have a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.0.
Philosophy 50: Special Topics in Philosophy
Philosophy 60: Foreign Study in Philosophy I
Philosophy 61: Foreign Study in Philosophy II
Depending on the subject, these courses may satisfy requirements for the major (e.g., the history of philosophy requirement). Any student who wants such credit should petition the chair of the Department of Philosophy at Dartmouth.
