Program Overview

TheaterThe Theater Foreign Study Program offers students the opportunity to combine historical study and professional practice in theater at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA), one of the world's great conservatories. The program is a unique chance for students to develop their craft while taking advantage of London's incomparable theatrical tradition and vibrant cultural scene. 
Theater 60: Classical Performance I & II are taught by the LAMDA faculty. These courses offer an intensive experience in classical theater training focused on acting (including improvisation), movement (including movement theater, clown, and historic dance), and voice (including poetry, prose, solo and choral singing). Texts include those of Shakespeare and either Jacobean or Restoration plays. This typical British conservatory experience is designed for students interested in acting, directing, playwriting, design, stage management, dramaturgy or criticism. These courses will be graded as credit/ no credit. 
Theater 62: Plays in Performance is taught by the Dartmouth instructor. It involves attendance at an average of two to three productions per week and a weekly seminar. You will receive a letter grade for this course. 
In addition to the many London theaters, including the Royal Shakespeare Company and National Theatre, students will have full access to London's cultural resources in music, dance, film, and museums. When practical, field trips to historical sites of theatrical interest and backstage tours of theater facilities will be scheduled.

Financial Information

Tuition and Fees
The fees charged by the College for a Dartmouth-sponsored off-campus term of study include regular tuition charges for a term at Dartmouth, service fees, as well as the specific costs established for each off-campus study locale. In many programs, the room and board costs tend to be higher than for a term in Hanover. You can view a budget sheet for this program by clicking here. The cost of transportation to and from the site is the responsibility of the student.

Financial Aid
In order that all qualified Dartmouth undergraduate students may have the opportunity to take part in off-campus programs, the College endeavors to adjust its normal financial aid awards for students already receiving aid. Tuition and expected family contribution for Dartmouth's off-campus programs are the same as for an on-campus term. Assistance is available to meet extra costs associated with off-campus programs, including airfare. Half of any extra cost is met with additional Dartmouth scholarship; loan assistance is offered for the other half. Loan assistance is also offered to replace the employment that would normally be included in an on-campus term. Although financial aid recipients are given aid to cover all of the required costs of the program, students are responsible for purchasing their own plane ticket and, on some programs, meals. Often this means that part of the expected family contribution is used towards these costs rather than for tuition.
