Hampshire College offers a number of faculty-led short-term field courses that provide students the opportunity for off-campus study and research either elsewhere in the U.S. or abroad. These courses are offered during January/winter or in May/summer and are generally 2-4 weeks in length.
Deadline to apply: October 14, 2016
Deadline to apply: March 3, 2017
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:
