Beyond the Classroom
Apply Your Learning
Hamilton’s academic departments and centers sponsor a growing number of programs that provide opportunities for you to put into practice what you’ve learned in class. Programs have ranged from a rust-to-green initiative in nearby Utica to research at a Late Bronze Age town on the Greek island of Crete.
Levitt Public Affairs Center
The Levitt Center helps students develop the academic knowledge and practical skills necessary to understand and address persistent social problems in innovative, effective, and ethical ways.
Community Outreach and Opportunity Project (COOP)
The COOP creates positive change for local non-profits while providing educational and leadership experiences for students.
Research and Internships
Take what you learn in the classroom and apply it by conducting biomedical research at a lab at UCLA, spending the summer assisting a congressman in Washington, D.C., or interning on Wall Street as a financial analyst. These experiences enhance your skills and education and help guide the path you'll choose after graduation.
In addition to more than 100 approved programs to study away from campus, Hamilton boasts its own highly regarded international and domestic programs.
Performance and Exhibitions
Serious student artists in music, theatre, dance, and studio art have many opportunities — and state-of-the-art facilities — in which to showcase their work.
We believe leadership can be taught. Three-quarters of seniors surveyed said they had served as a leader of a campus organization.
