Summer Academic Programs
Hampshire College offers a variety of summer academic programs designed to reflect our academic philosophy by linking critical engagement to experience-based education. Our programs support diverse learning communities—undergraduates, pre-college students, graduate students, professionals, practitioners, and life-long learners.

Summer 2014 Academic Programs

All programs are designed to reflect Hampshire's unique academic philosophy by pairing critical engagement with experience-based education.

January Term
January Term at Hampshire College offers a unique opportunity to pursue a variety of interests. Students may study a specific subject in depth, take workshops, participate in seminars, or work independently on divisional examinations.

As of January 2014, the length of the Jan Term precludes offering full academic courses. The College is instead expanding the Jan Term workshop curriculum, offering a full array of co-curricular academic workshops in 2014.
