Professor Paul Musselwhite will be holding an information session about the History London FSP at University College London for interested students.
The History Department offers a foreign study program at affiliated University College London in England during fall term. Courses are taught by faculty and lecturers from UCL and Dartmouth.
Students take a course 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. Students will also have an opportunity to join British students in a history course at UCL. Finally, as the centerpiece of the program, students will undertake an individual archival research project that will utilize London's abundant resources in 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.
Nowhere 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 millennia, its archives, museums, libraries, and built environment allow this program to offer experiences in the study of history that are unavailable on campus.
