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.

Writing

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.

Speaking

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.

Arts

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.

The quill atop the Chapel is no idle boast. From its beginnings, Hamilton has revered its commitment to writing, and our faculty across disciplines, continually seek ways to help students develop into accomplished communicators.

Band Club: Where Everyone Has a Voice

Applause rumbled as the Tolles Pavilion shook. My vision readjusted past the blazing bright lights as I scanned the crowd. Joyful eyes and smiles. Raised arms and cheers. I don’t remember breathing in those moments, but I remember what I felt. I was in a state of pure wonderment as I fixed the microphone back to the stand.
