FSP in New Zealand – January 2018

The Department of Anthropology and the Program in Linguistics offer a joint foreign study program (FSP) at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. It is the only off campus program in the South Pacific, and is held during winter term in Hanover, which is of course summer in New Zealand. Themed around an exploration of "Colonialism and its Legacies," the program offers students intensive introductions to anthropology of the region, and to Maori studies, the Maori being the indigenous people of New Zealand. 

Through the foreign study program students and faculty travel to Auckland, New Zealand, Auckland is the largest city in New Zealand, with a culturally diverse population of about one million. Classes are held at the University of Auckland in the Departments of Anthropology and Maori Studies. The University of Auckland is an internationally recognized center for the study of Pacific archaeology, cultural anthropology, and linguistics. The campus is located on a headland with spectacular views over Waitemata Harbour, parks on two sides, and the central business district just a ten-minute walk away. Students live and study alongside New Zealand students of European, Maori, Pacific Island, and Asian descent, learning about their cultures from personal contacts as well as from classes. As enrolled members of the University's summer school, Dartmouth students have access to all the facilities of a major university, including a large sports complex.
