Foreign Study

The Linguistics Program and the Department of Anthropology offer a joint foreign study program in Auckland, New Zealand; the only Dartmouth off-campus program in the South Pacific. Information on the program — for both linguistics and anthropology majors — is available on the Anthropology website. The director of the FSP is a professor from Dartmouth Anthropology. The students on the linguistics side of the program take courses in Maori Language (LING 8), an Anthropology course on Colonialism (ANTH 51), and Polynesian Linguistics (LING 54). LING 8 is taught by a local University of Auckland instructor. ANTH 51 is taught by the Dartmouth FSP director (Anthropology). LING 54 is taught by a Dartmouth Linguistics professor who spends approximately one month teaching on-site in Auckland with the program.
