Dartmouth College is a private research university based in Hanover, New Hampshire. Dartmouth is one of the oldest institutions of higher education in the United States and also one of the most selective, being the smallest university in the Ivy League.
Dartmouth offers Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Engineering degrees for undergraduates, along with over 50 major programs and numerous interdisciplinary programs in the social and natural sciences, humanities, and engineering. Popular majors at the university include Social Sciences, Engineering, and Biological and Biomedical Sciences. In addition to undergraduate degrees, Dartmouth also offers postgraduate degrees through well-known, established graduate schools such as the Geisel School of Medicine, Thayer School of Engineering, and Tuck School of Business. Students can take advantage of the Dartmouth Plan to design their own academic calendar.
Aside from its undergraduate and postgraduate programs, Dartmouth College provides students with opportunities for studying abroad through Foreign Study programs, transfer terms, and exchange programs with over 20 countries.
One of the nine colonial colleges of the U.S, Dartmouth was founded in 1769 by Eleazar Wheelock, a minister who wanted to establish a school for training Native Americans as Christian missionaries. Named after the 2nd Earl of Dartmouth, one of Wheelock's most important supporters, the university granted its degrees in 1771. In the early 1800s, Dartmouth successfully challenged New Hampshire's attempt to turn the school into a public university. The Dartmouth College case is now known as a landmark case that paved the way for American private institutions to conduct their affairs without interference from the state.
Throughout its history, Dartmouth College has maintained a reputation of selectivity as well as of excellence in undergraduate teaching and research. Dartmouth has also consistently placed at the top of rankings for its undergraduate teaching and undergraduate programs. Testament to this is how a number of the university's alumni have gone on to become Nobel Prize laureates, Pulitzer Prize winners, and Rhodes scholars. Notable alumni of the university include poet Robert Frost and writer Theodore Seuss Geisel (Dr. Seuss).
Classified as having "very high research activity" by the Carnegie Foundation, Dartmouth College is also home to over 50 research centers and institutes. Faculty experts lead most of the research activities at the university, with undergraduates participating in nearly 1,000 individualized studies each year. The university's Geisel School of Medicine is particularly known for its biomedical research, receiving hundreds of millions in annual research funding. The university also has research centers for engineering, business, leadership, and social impact.
