Graduate and postdoctoral education at Dartmouth is more intimate than at the big research universities we are often compared to. Our faculty lead small, intense, research teams and our students enjoy unparalleled access to leaders in their fields—across all of our departments and professional schools.
You live at a moment when most of the world’s challenges have grown too complex to solve within any single discipline. Dartmouth develops young scholars who can approach problems from multiple perspectives and who can work across fields of study.
At Dartmouth, we have fused the liberal arts tradition with research. We believe that intense collaboration among brilliant people and strong departments accelerates discovery.
We seek to move the world forward, and want our scientists to be able to communicate effectively with non-scientists.
We want our engineers to design things that are not only functional but also beautiful, and who understand economics as well as aesthetics. We seek the type of scholar who trains in genetics, and also appreciates the ethics of such technology and its implications for society.
