As a liberal arts college, Dickinson is committed to breadth as well as depth of quality in its curriculum. We believe that astudent should have the opportunity to explore different aspects of the curriculum before declaring a major. We do not expectour applicants, as seniors in high school, to know precisely what they want to major in or what they plan to do with the restof their lives. Learning how to make such choices wisely is what Dickinson's four-year liberal arts education is all about.
