Study Abroad and Domestic Options at Hampshire

The Global Education Office (GEO) at Hampshire encourages students to integrate global experiences into their academic program in ways that expand their understanding of other cultures, perspectives, and educational environments; promote ethical citizenship and community; and inspire positive change. Students, in consultation with their academic advisors, choose from a wide range of programs all over the world or design their own programs.
