We not only allow it, we encourage it!
Skidmore is a liberal arts school where we pride ourselves in our cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary approach to learning. Students with multiple majors and minors are practically standard here. Our motto is Creative Thought Matters–and that means that Skidmore people believe that every life, every career and every endeavor is more profound with creativity at its core. Our students definitely get creative with their majors and minors. Here are a few who have applied creative thought to their own academic journeys:
Calder Wilson '11, double major in Art and Management & Business: http://bit.ly/nSOGs9
Joshua Cipolla '09, Classics major, Music minor: http://bit.ly/jOymLh
Melissa Green '13, Environmental Studies major, Studio Art minor: http://bit.ly/mQe8Uj
Leo Cancelmo '12, Psychology major, Music minor: http://bit.ly/pUbwDw
We also have a self-determined track where students can integrate more than one discipline to create their own major. For more information go to http://cms.skidmore.edu/sdm/.
Hope that helps!
