Language and Advanced Language Study Abroad Program

Departments of French and Italian, German Studies, Russian, and Spanish and Portuguese, and the Asian Societies, Cultures and Languages, and Middle Eastern Studies interdisciplinary programs.

A student may choose to satisfy the Language Requirement through a combination of two preparatory courses at Dartmouth and one term of study abroad. It is preferred that students take the preparatory courses as close to departure as possible. After satisfactory completion of the required language prerequisite, the student will spend one term abroad studying the language and culture. Language Study Abroad (LSA) is available in France, Germany, Italy, Argentina, or Spain.

Advanced Language Study Abroad (LSA+) is available in Brazil, China, France, Italy, Japan, Morocco, and Russia. Students must have the equivalent of language 3.

Possible enrollment is limited by the number of spaces available; all students who wish to participate in an LSA or LSA + program must receive the department’s minimum grade in Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese or Spanish in their preparatory course or courses. Students will be selected on the basis of their application forms and letters of reference; actual participation is subject to maintenance of satisfactory academic standing. Admission to these programs cannot be guaranteed. Formal applications are available online from the Guarini Institute's website. It is the student’s responsibility to contact Guarini Institute for application deadline information. Students interested in an LSA but unable to participate in their second year for curricular reasons should review the Regulations section of this catalog. For a complete listing of these offerings, see Language Study Abroad in the Regulations section of this catalog.
