The Sociology Lynk: Classroom to Career

Applied Critical Thinking

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