Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

I am a Physics and CS major at Middlebury. I have taken courses in the Engineering, Physics and CS departments at Dartmouth. The programs were rigor, the quarter system makes everything look busier and harder though all the courses teach the same course load as Middlebury. The maker space is a great resources at Dartmouth.

intermediate electricity and magnetism

Instruction Language: En
Comments: We went through exactly the same materials we went through at middlebury but much faster due to the quarter system. I personnaly though that Physics professors at Middlebury were better at teaching the subject. I would have taken the course at Middlebury rather than Dartmouth.
