Explore Your Passions: Hamilton's Open Curriculum

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 discovering what they love and choosing their major; our open curriculum works for them too. With over 40 majors and nearly 60 areas of study, you’ll have the freedom to explore your passions – and at the same time feel supported as you map out your learning plan through close consultation with our integrated advising network. In this panel discussion, members of our student community explain how Hamilton’s open curriculum works, how they decided on their major and minor, and what they’re doing to maximize the academic resources available to explore their interests and achieve their goals.

International Student Life at Hamilton

Moderated by Hamilton’s Director of International Recruitment Anna Wise, this panel will feature current Hamilton students from across the globe. We’re proud of the wide range of students from diverse backgrounds who are on College Hill. On our campus this past year were students from 47 states and 51 countries, with international students comprising 7% of our student body.
