A new curriculum that eliminates distribution requirements and adds a unique multidisciplinary seminar at the end of the sophomore year has been approved by the faculty at Hamilton College... With the addition of The Sophomore Gateway (the senior program was adopted by the faculty in 1987), Hamilton officials believe the new curriculum may be unique among national liberal arts colleges in systematically assessing the quality of teaching and learning for both general education and the concentration. "These curricular changes represent for me the most momentous changes at Hamilton since I joined the faculty in 1980," Hamilton President Eugene M. Tobin said.
