Classes are small and discussion-focused, and students are given ample opportunities to gain hands-on experience through internships, independent study programs, and field research semesters.

Students also have access to the vast resources of the Five College Consortium: over 5,000 classes and nearly 1,000 student organizations and club sports teams to choose from every semester.

Hampshire is one of the most environmentally sustainable colleges in the U.S., with a large on-campus farm and solar arrays that are able to meet 100% of its energy needs.
