• Open Curriculum

    Most colleges have a core curriculum or distribution requirements; Hamilton does not.

  • The Faculty

    Hamilton’s teacher-scholars actively engage in the intellectual lives of their students.

    Areas of Study

    Hamilton offers 45 majors (we call them concentrations) and 58 total areas of study.

At Hamilton, you will explore your passions by taking classes and pursuing academic opportunities that align with your interests and goals. That might mean studying abroad, conducting independent research, or pursuing an internship. Plus, you’ll be supported by dozens of curricular and cocurricular resources designed to ensure your success.

The Academic Experience

Whatever path you choose, you will become a critical and creative thinker, writer, and speaker — skills that will help you stand out no matter what path you pursue after graduation.

Guided Independence

Although our curriculum has relatively few requirements, professors have high expectations that you will make responsible, informed decisions about your intellectual development. Advisors will work with you to create an individualized plan of study that reflects your interests and abilities and Hamilton’s purposes and goals.

Learn by Doing

Hamilton provides an increasing number of opportunities for students to engage in significant, often publishable, research in all disciplines. You might also explore your career interests through an internship, many of which include College-funded stipends.

Destination: The World

Our international and domestic study programs will provide you with new perspectives and new ways to challenge yourself. About two-thirds of Hamilton students study off campus before graduating.

Express yourself

Communicating well provides evidence of your ability to think well. See how Hamiltonians express themselves through:
