Culture, Brain, and Development
The Program in Culture, Brain, and Development at Hampshire College, founded in 2003 with funding from the Foundation for Psycho-Cultural Research, formally links the schools of cognitive science, social science, and natural science, to generate new cross-school courses and activities at the intersection of neuroscience, anthropology, psychology, and related fields.

This program has strong links to learning and research opportunities in the southwest and Mexico. Faculty in anthropology and other areas are highly active in this area.
