As part of your campus visit, we encourage you to observe Hampshire's pedagogy in action. Class visits are a great way to get a sense of Hampshire's student culture, to meet faculty and students, and to understand better our approach to rigorous academics.
The admissions office maintains the list of courses that are available for prospective students to visit. Please contact the admissions office in advance if you plan to visit a class. This schedule is subject to change. To keep course attendance small, we limit class visits to prospective students only.

"There are two reasons why Hampshire graduates achieve so much. One is the kind of person the college attracts. The other is what the college does for them by equipping them to become their own wide-ranging explorers and connection-seekers."
