  • “Self-guided learning has been crucial to not only my web work, but also my piano playing.”

  • “After seven years in the news, I yearned to tell stories that were not a part of the news cycle. I wanted to tell stories in a more lyrical and non-formulaic manner. And I wanted to learn how to shoot and edit film. In short, it was at this point that I came to realize that I wanted to be a filmmaker. So I left CBS News, enrolled in the New School and 10 years after I graduated from Hamilton, I received my master’s in media studies.”

  • “I’ve spoken with students looking to pursue a career in different areas of production and I always encourage them to really diversify their experiences during their time at Hamilton, where I think there are more opportunities than at a more concentrated program. I think Hamilton gave me valuable experiences and an education that gave me the confidence to run my own business. While self-designed majors were rarer while I was there, I sense that more and more students are figuring out how to get the most out of their education and I believe Hamilton really encourages that.”
