Working with a faculty advisor, students craft a course of study that reflects their interests and abilities, and the College’s purposes and goals.
Study What You Love
OUR OPEN CURRICULUM
Some students know exactly what they want to study and can’t wait to get started; Hamilton’s open curriculum provides that flexibility. Others explore different options before choosing their concentration; our open curriculum works for them, too. But an open curriculum is not for everyone. It is best suited for students who are independent, motivated, and committed to the ideals of a broad-based liberal arts education. If that describes you, Hamilton might be a good fit for your next four years.
