Transforming Education

We’re living through a time of great change, with revolutions in technology, global politics, modes of human interaction, knowledge creation, the nature of culture, and the environment. By one estimate, 65% of today’s students will be in jobs that haven’t been invented yet.

At Hampshire, our message is simple: To know is not enough.

Focus on meeting the challenges ahead. Be experience-based. Be learner-centered. Be inquiry-driven.

The Hampshire Experience

At Hampshire, you’ll work across, between, and without disciplines—and you’ll  combine fields to curate your own original course of study. You’ll be challenged with the freedom to formulate questions never asked before.

You’ll also take part in a curriculum that reflects the world around us—ever-changing, fluid, and never contained within a single discipline.

Our Learning Collaborative-based curriculum is experimental and radical. It extends beyond conventional ways of teaching, learning, and living. 

There is no other undergraduate institution that approaches learning this way.

These are just a few examples of how we help develop intellectual curiosity and ethical courage in our students—confidence to turn ideas into action and to make meaningful change in the world. 

This is how we learn without boundaries.

Our approach to education is different:
