Environments and Change
How should we act on our responsibilities in the face of changing climate?
You will not come to Hampshire to pursue a major. A student’s job when they get here isn’t to declare a major, it’s to discover their mission.
你可以选择 教师顾问 to work with as you create an individualized academic curriculum addressing the big question, 挑战, or issue you're most interested in.
You'll work across, between, and without disciplines to curate your own original course of study. You'll be 挑战d with the freedom to formulate questions never asked before.
The world has big problems. Traditional models of departments and schools can’t address these 挑战s effectively. So we’ve organized ourselves around Learning Collaboratives. Through these groups of academic resources, students and professors come together to address the pressing real world concerns facing society today.
And we will not remain static. As global 挑战s shift, so do the topics of our Collaboratives. We evolve and change to reflect the world around us.
Take part in a curriculum that reflects the world around us—ever-changing, 流体, and never contained within a single discipline. Focus on working with your peers and faculty members to directly tackle 21st-century 挑战s and enact real change in the world.
You advance through a divisional structure rather than traditional school years. Each Division requires a portfolio review, including narrative feedback from each course, final papers and projects, community-engaged learning, other meaningful work, and a retrospective, capped off by a yearlong Div三世 project of your own design.
These evaluations parallel professional performance reviews, helping students identify their areas of growth potential along with their areas of strength.
We don’t box you in with traditional majors or departments. Build a program that aligns with your interests, passions, questions, and goals.
