More Opportunities to Build Your Own Education
Learning at Hampshire doesn’t end in the classroom. Students live their educations, creating new knowledge, art, and approaches relevant to the challenges of today and tomorrow.

  • » Great Freedom, Great Support:
    With a 11:1 student/faculty ratio and an average class size of 15 students, no other undergraduate college surpasses the level of faculty guidance and collaboration you'll experience at Hampshire.
  • » Five Times the Options:
    Our membership in the Five College consortium allows you access to 2,200 faculty teaching 5,300 classes each year. At no extra cost.

Expect more from your education. Create. Share your ideas. Reevaluate. Revise. This is Hampshire—where ideas take root.
