The Economics Lynk: Classroom to Career

Global citizens and the liberal arts education

We encourage all majors to seek out opportunities that connect classroom study at Mount Holyoke with applied learning in internships and social innovation projects and with immersion in another culture through study, internships, or research abroad. The learning from such connections is important preparation not only for post-graduate education and careers, but also for active citizenship in today’s global world.
