Alumnae Outcomes

Graduates of Mount Holyoke who have majored in French have used the analytical skills and means of expression acquired during their studies to pursue a wide range of career options: education, government service, law, international banking, publishing, and marketing, among others. Mount Holyoke students and alumnae can use the Alumnae Association Alumnae Directory to connect with and search for Alumnae by major or career field, or find alumnae participating in the Alumnae Stay Program. The Alumnae Stay Program provides free, temporary, and safe housing to a Mount Holyoke College student or alumna traveling to pursue academic and professional growth.
