The Politics Lynk: Classroom to Career

Beginning Your Career Now

Nothing is more important for your career than getting it started now. Some of our courses contain a community-based learning component and many require policy-related research and writing. We encourage all majors to pursue different types of internships and jobs throughout their time at Mount Holyoke so that by the time they graduate they have found their passion and are already doing what they want to do.
