Self-Determined Majors

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. 

Mission Statement

The Self-Determined Major transcends the boundaries of Skidmore's majors and minors and reflects the integration of more than one discipline toward the attainment of a clearly developed and coherent course of study.

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.
