‘No majors, no departments’: Hampshire College votes to shape academics around modern challenges- JACQUELYN VOGHEL, Hampshire Gazette

“We are restructuring ourselves to move questions and projects to the center of every student’s education,” Hampshire College President Ed Wingenbach said at The Red Barn on Wednesday.
With the new academic model, “Hampshire is radicalizing its transdisciplinary commitment,” he said, “removing all barriers across fields of study to create truly integrated curriculum. No majors, no departments, no curricular divisions, liberating students to formulate questions that have never been answered before.”
