What good is having a great idea if you can’t communicate it effectively? We’ll teach you how to express yourself through writing and speaking, of course, but also through digital communications and artistic expression — all of which will help you stand out no matter what path you choose after graduation.


Although Hamilton’s open curriculum has no “distribution requirements,” students must select three courses from across the curriculum designated as writing-intensive. That’s how important we believe it is for you to learn to write in a clear, organized, and effective way.


Hamilton is one of only a handful of top liberal arts colleges with an independent Oral Communication Center. Here you’ll learn to express yourself with clarity and eloquence. 

Digital Fluency

From using digital media to communicate and collaborate to exploring the potential uses of data, analytics, and computer modeling, we’ll help you navigate the ethical and societal implications of living in an online world.


The creation of art at Hamilton is not just for art majors. Here, you’ll have opportunities to integrate creative work and performance into courses throughout the curriculum.
