    Every course addresses a wider set of critical concerns, such as cultural awareness and literary sensibility, and maintains a steady focus on sharpening our students’ analytical thinking and writing skills. Classical education invites students to share in the appreciation and the scrutiny of the legacies of the ancient world. 

    The study of the Latin language is one of the primary means of access to the vanished culture of the ancient Romans, not only their rich and varied literature but also their politics, legal system, philosophical thought, daily life, and burial customs. In addition, even a modest achievement in Latin can make one a much more effective and knowledgeable user of the English language and many other modern languages.

    Studying of Greek provides a wide range of Greek poetry and prose – epic, lyric poetry, history, drama, philosophy, and New Testament Greek, by authors such as Homer, Sappho, Herodotus, Sophocles, Aristophanes, Plato, and Paul.

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.

    Dartmouth Scholarships are need-based and are given without expectation of repayment. Amounts range from $1,000 to over $50,000, depending on our determination of your eligibility. Some Dartmouth students will be selected as recipients of one or more of our over 750 endowed scholarship funds. These awards are not additional money, but indicate that the aid already awarded will come from a specific endowed fund. No separate application is required. Students who receive scholarships from external sources can use these funds to reduce the loan and/or job portions of their financial aid packages. Veteran's benefits are included as a resource in the determination of eligibility for Dartmouth scholarship awards. Dartmouth College currently participates at 100% in the Yellow Ribbon Program which supplements GI Bill benefits. For U.S. citizens or permanent residents, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the only form required to apply for Federal Financial Aid. The federal government provides Pell Grants to students who qualify on the basis of financial need as determined by their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG) are awarded by the College to the most needy students. They vary in amount but do not exceed $4,000 a year. When you apply for financial aid, your parents' country of residence will determine which documents you need to submit.
