The Environmental Studies Lynk: Classroom to Career

Local and global opportunities for experiential learning 

We encourage all majors to seek out opportunities that connect classroom study at Mount Holyoke with experiential learning in internships and research 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.
