Environmental Studies and Sustainability Program (ESSP)

Hampshire's interdisciplinary Environmental Studies and Sustainability Program (ESSP) includes environmental science; ecology; sustainable agriculture; conservation; technology and design; and sustainable communities.

"It is paradoxical that buildings on college and university campuses, places of intellect, characteristically show so little thought, imagination, sense of place, ecological awareness, and relation to any larger pedagogical intent....A genuine liberal arts education will foster a sense of connectedness, implicatedness, and ecological citizenship, and will provide the competence to act upon such knowledge."

David Orr, "Architecture as Pedagogy," 1994
