Explore Your Passions
You’re smart, ambitious, and inquisitive with a diverse set of interests, so naturally you’re looking for a college that will challenge you. And since you haven’t had a lot of choices regarding the classes you’ve taken in high school, you can’t wait to pursue what interests you in college. At Hamilton, that freedom is even greater because we are one of the few colleges in the United States with an open curriculum.
Hamilton’s open curriculum will allow you to choose courses that reflect your interests; however, with that freedom comes the responsibility to make informed decisions about your intellectual development. That’s why we don’t expect you to chart your course alone. Your faculty advisor and our ALEX (Advise, Learn, and EXperience) program will ensure your academic success, career preparation, experiential learning, and personal growth.
Apply What You Learn
Hamilton also offers countless opportunities for you to take what you learn in the classroom one step further, whether through service learning, community service, or academic research. These experiences take place on campus and off, and often involve independent work supervised by faculty and alumni.
