Self-Determined Majors (SDM) integrate more than one discipline to achieve a clearly developed and coherent course of study not available through the existing majors and minors at Skidmore. A Self-Determined Major, therefore, extends the depth and interdisciplinarity of double majors or interdepartmental majors.
Recent Self-Determined Majors include arts administration, film studies, Italian studies, Chinese, poetry, media studies and communications, computational neuroscience, the physics and sound of recording, and public health.
