Opportunity and flexibility are the hallmarks of a McDaniel education. We offer courses of study in more than 60 areas, including pre-professional programs and teaching certification. Don’t see a major course of study that appeals to you? Self-design your own. Below is how you can make the most of your four years here.

1

Pick a First-Year Seminar (FYS) that intrigues you. Your professor and peer mentor who will help you transition to college.

2

During your second year, you’ll select at least one course from the Sophomore Interdisciplinary Studies (SIS) program.

3

In your third year you’ll focus your course of study and become adept at writing in your chosen discipline.

4

Your Senior Capstone project will be your crowning achievement, an in-depth investigation of a topic in each of your majors.
