Reflecting on your experience is a core requirement of Nexus. Students reflect on their experience in the course College 211 “Reflecting Back: Connecting Internship and Research to your Liberal Arts Education” and present at the Learning from Application (LEAP) Symposium in the fall semester after completing summer internships or research experiences. In this course, students learn to speak with confidence and clarity about their summer project and collaborate with others to generate useful knowledge.
In College 211, Anushree Bhatia ’18, psychology major with a Nexus in Global Business developed a presentation for the annual LEAP Symposium entitled Casa away from Home: Intercultural Research in Argentina. She writes, “I had one of the most culturally enriching experiences of my life through my internship at a small private language institute in La Plata.” Leadership, passion, and empathy are just a few words she shares when reflecting on her education and experiences at Mount Holyoke.
“I believe that in order to have a holistic education it is extremely important to research a concept from all perspectives, which, would only be possible if we have access to a global education.”
