International Learning

Explore beyond borders

An international learning experience is as exhilarating as it is important. Increasing your understanding of how the world works and collaborating across cultures are key to success in a global future. That’s why at Mount Holyoke you can make international learning a part of your education in ways that work for you. Whether it’s a study abroad program, international research experience or classes with our diverse student body, you’ll gain a global perspective on everything from physics to philosophy.

A global commitment

As an institution and a community, we encourage everyone to broaden their perspectives. Experiencing new cultures, languages and ways of thinking are a daily part of life at Mount Holyoke.

Students in the connected courses of professors Kavita Khory, politics, and Nieves Romero-Díaz, Spanish, have gained a deeper understanding of Spain’s Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba by studying together from their separate disciplines.

The center is the hub for international experiences, programming and resources at Mount Holyoke — it’s your gateway to the world.
