Hampshire College approaches learning differently. You'll design your own personalized major in collaboration with a faculty committee and engage in small, project-based courses. There are no grades; instead, you'll be deeply evaluated through narrative assessment. As a member of the Five College Consortium in Amherst, Massachusetts, you have access to over 6,000 courses a year, 9 million volumes across 18 libraries, and hundreds of clubs and activities. Highly interdisciplinary, experiential, and student-centered, a Hampshire education is unlike any other.
