Dartmouth College

Address: Hanover, New Hampshire 03755, USA

Description Dartmouth College

  • Founded: in 1769
  • Location: Hannover, New Hampshire, USA
  • Total number of students: 6,340.

Dartmouth College today is considered to be one of the best in the US and the world of higher education, is part of the legendary Ivy League - the community of America's most prestigious, elite universities. Distinctive features of the college are strong humanitarian bachelor programs and excellent master's programs, which are research in the field of humanities and natural sciences.

The college was founded in 1769 by the forces of the priest Eleazar Vilok - he wanted to educate English and American youth, as well as to  attract young people of Indian descent who had lived in this land for centuries. In 1972, the college began to accept girls (introduced a mixed form of studying), and in 2004 the university was named one of the most reliable in the world (according to the consulting firm Allen Hamilton).

It is worth mentioning the famous "The Case of Dartmouth College" (thundered in 1819), associated with attempts to nationalize the educational institution. Today, this legal precedent is considered to be one of the main provisions for the prohibition (on the basis of the constitution) of government intervention in the private affairs of educational institutions - the administration of Dartmouth College was able to defend its independence, the ability to independently draft the rules and regulations, and avoid total control by the state.

There are more than 40 different departments in the college. Among the most popular educational programs (according to the statistics of 2013) the following can be noted:

  • Economics
  • Public administration
  • Psychology
  • Brain research
  • Biology and related sciences
  • History
  • Engineering
  • English
  • Mathematics.

The college, in addition to the main faculties, includes three large school-departments:

  • Faculty of Medicine. Geysel

Founded back in 1797, today it is considered to be one of the best medical faculties in the USA. The newest educational and research methods and a huge amount of scientific research - that's what makes this faculty the flagship of medical education. In total, the medical faculty includes 17 departments (mainly research and clinical medicine). Popular programs - doctorate in medicine (M.D.), master's and doctoral degrees (directions "Public Health", "Biomedical Research").

  • Business School for them. Taka

The first business school in the country in which master's and doctorate programs were introduced for the Master's program. Today the department is considered  to be one of the best business schools around the world. The most popular programs are MBA (Master of Business Administration), non-degree programs (executive education, advanced studying).

  • Faculty of Engineering. Tayera

Includes the Department of Engineering (provides a wide range of bachelor's programs) and a special faculty of specialized education (more narrowly focused specialties for obtaining a master's degree or a doctor of engineering sciences).

The total number of teachers working in the most demanded areas (humanities and natural sciences) is 391 people: Dartmoor is the first among the Ivy League universities in terms of the number of female teachers.

The first doctoral degree in Dartmoor was awarded back in 1885, and modern doctoral programs work (of course, continuously developing and improving) since the 1960s.

  • The discovery of the neural network of the brain, which is responsible for creative processes and development - is an important contribution to the program of creating artificial intelligence;
  • Works of V. Koehler on the behavior of anthropoid apes - later it was Koehler who became the founder of Gestalt psychology;
  • Teacher H.H. Scott inscribed himself in the Hall of Fame of consumer electronics: he invented the tube amplifier, became the creator of a high-quality broadcasting system and the author of a dozen more inventions in the field of electronics;
  • B. Cheboyer most accurately among all modern scientists (the probability of up to 95%) determined the age of the universe.

Equipment Dartmouth College

Dartmoor College occupies a huge territory in Hanover: the architectural style of the campus is based on the colonial style (most of the buildings were built from 1820 to 1920, but the building continued until 2006). On the north of the campus there is a Medical School with its laboratories and a large library, in the south - a medical center and a university hospital, and in the west - the Engineering School and the Business School.

A separate Hopkins Arts Center is also built for students: there are numerous creative studios and workshops, including classes of jewelry, film production, drama and music. On the college territory there are 2 own theaters and a large concert hall, the Museum of Arts and about 9 libraries (both general and specialized).

The sports infrastructure of the college is mainly concentrated on the southeast of the campus: there are numerous playgrounds, running tracks, a large fitness club and a spacious pool, a football field, a skating rink and its own ski slope.

It is worth noting the desire of Dartmoor to garden its territories, to increase its ecological and natural value. In particular, around 200 traditional American elm trees are grown around the buildings, and each year their number is only increased by the forces of students and teachers.
