At Hamilton, we promise to assist you in creating a program of study that meets your individual interests and goals.


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.
