Staying on track at Skidmore

Off-Campus Study at Skidmore College has been developed to complement Skidmore’s degree programs and meet the high standards of a Skidmore education. The main objective of our off-campus program structure is to include programs that allow Skidmore students to integrate more closely their experiences off-campus with their work here on campus. All off-campus programs are linked to Skidmore’s curriculum and are meant to support majors and minors.
