Skidmore academics feature an array of liberal arts and preprofessional offerings with an interdisciplinary focus that opens students’ minds and brings creative thought to life. The First-Year Experience sets the tone, after which students take advantage of hands-on research, internships, service learning, off-campus study, and other transformative experiences that prepare them for graduate school and professional life. Cooperative degree programs with other institutions are another valuable option.
A full and updated listing of all majors, minors, and programs is in the Skidmore Catalog.
Majors and Minors
Students can choose from B.A. and B.S. degrees in nearly 50 disciplines—in the arts, humanities, sciences, and social sciences, as well as in preprofessional fields such as management and business, education studies, and health and exercise sciences. Some students even craft their own self-determined majors. And most carry two majors or add a minor. Most major disciplines also offer minor programs.

Cooperative Degree Programs & Preprofessional Planning
In addition to its own master’s program, MALS, Skidmore offers cooperative bachelor’s and master’s programs with other leading institutions in areas such as business, engineering, nursing, and physical and occupational therapy. Dedicated assistance is also available for students preparing for medical, dental, veterinary, and other health schools through the Health Professions Advisory Committee.
Special Academic Experiences
In addition to the First-Year Experience, students engage in numerous high-impact experiences, including summer and academic-year collaborative research with faculty; internships for academic credit and/or pay; service-learning courses; off-campus study, including Skidmore programs in Beijing/Shanghai, London, Paris, and Alcala/Madrid; and more. Each is an opportunity to build mastery in an area of study, add new knowledge and skills, and branch out in unexpected directions.
