"Hampshire's interdisciplinary Environmental Studies and Sustainability Program (ESSP) is a multidisciplinary program through which students develop an interdisciplinary, project-based course of study. The program includes research and courses in agroecology, environmental science; ecology; sustainable and organic agriculture; conservation; technology and design; and sustainable communities."

State:

Interdepartmental graduate degree delivered in partnership with 21 Iowa State University departments. The GPSA program also offers M.S. (thesis and non-thesis) and Ph.D. degrees, and a double degree M.S. program.

The Human Ecology degree is an interdisciplinary program that allows students to design their own degree and build a curriculum that meets their needs. This program offers learning opportunities on different "scales." Some students "focus on learning production techniques and farm management skills, or contributing to local food security and resilience efforts. Others work at the international level to understand food politics and the economics forces that affect agriculture." The college operates two organic farms: Beech Hill Farm and Peggy Rockefeller Farms.
