Sample Schedules

We offer the sample schedules of courses that a student might take in order to complete all degree requirements on a three-year schedule, without the need for summer courses or AP credit.

The sample schedules include representative programs (theatre arts, biology, and economics) from each of the College’s academic divisions. 

Hartwick College offers a diverse array of courses, some of which are offered in alternate years only, so students should work closely with their academic advisors to determine the optimal choice of courses that will enable them to develop their individual interests as they complete their degree requirements.
