    HAMPSHIRE COLLEGE REVIEW

    I chose Hampshire because I realized I would be able to study and concentrate on whatever interests me and I wouldn't have to take required courses for a major that I wasn't super interested in. At Hampshire, I get to become really excited about my work.


    Course Curriculum - 

    Hampshire is very open-ended and allows you to study whatever you are interested in. In your first year, you will have to take the course is multiple disciplines but after that, you are free to concentrate on whatever you want.
