The Hampshire College system of inquiry-based learning helps develop the independence of thought and the analytical skills necessary to become a good journalist.

Courses in literary journalism use workshops to help students learn to write and to critique narrative nonfiction—the "long-form journalism" that is integral to twenty-first century reporting.

Through the flexibility of Hampshire's academic program, journalism concentrators can take courses not only in reading, writing, or photographic journalism, but in the specific fields they want to write about.
