General Information

Courses that are 2-4 weeks in length are considered equivalent to a semester-long course, for which Hampshire recommends four transfer credits. The academic level and prerequisites vary by program. Courses offered differ each year, and previous field courses may or may not repeat in future years. All Hampshire short-term field courses have an application, course fee, and registration process administered through the global education office. 


If you have any questions about short-term field courses, eligibility, or how to apply, please contact the global education office:

If you have questions about a specific short-term field course's academic content, please contact the faculty director for the course.
