    At Hampshire, your education focuses on personalized, independent work, close collaboration with faculty, and hands-on experience through study abroad, short-term field studies, internships, volunteer work, advanced independent projects, and much more.

    Hampshire opened in 1970, created when presidents of four distinguished New England colleges sought a home for bold, influential—even radical—ideas in higher education.

    Advancing through three levels, or Divisions, students explore freely and widely across Hampshire's five interdisciplinary Schools. To graduate, every student, with faculty advice and guidance, devises an individual program in which he or she attempts to ask--and answer–a question perhaps never before posed.
