Your first year at Dickinson is filled with exciting
transitions. You may negotiate some of them quite easily, and you may
encounter other that require determination and resilience. As you consider the
many possibilities available here, we encourage you to make careful
selections and to engage deeply with your studies.
Your Dickinson education offers choices from your very first
semester. What are your keenest interests? How do they align with our
programs? Which courses will build a foundation for exploring your interests?
Which courses would allow you to explore areas of potential interest? If you
work closely with your academic advisor, these questions need not be
daunting! In fact, many students find the process of designing an academic
program thought provoking and fun.
