Summer academic programs provide students with a distillation of Hampshire’s rigorous, hands-on educational approach in weeks-long immersive experiences.
To know is not enough. No approach to education is better geared to meet the challenges ahead than the model Hampshire provides. Experience-based. Learner-centered. Inquiry-driven. Hampshire is extreme sports for the mind. Come tie the loose ends of learning together this summer.
Hampshire College offers a variety of summer academic programs designed to reflect our academic philosophy by linking critical engagement to experience-based education. Our programs support diverse learning communities: undergraduates, pre-college students, graduate students, professionals, practitioners, and life-long learners. Immersive, rigorous, challenging, and fun, these programs delve deeply into their given topic or subject matter.
2017 Summer Academic Programs will run June 1-July 1, 2017 (see specific program pages for exact dates). These programs are intended for current undergraduate college students, graduate students, post-B.A.s, professionals, and high school seniors who will have graduated by spring 2017.
Pre-college programs will run July 17-28, 2017, with the exception of Hampshire College Summer Studies in Mathematics. Pre-college programs are for high school students entering their junior or senior year of high school.
"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."
