For over 175 years, Mount Holyoke College (MHC) has been educating women for thoughtful, effective, and purposeful engagement in the world. Experience has taught us that international internships serve as one of the most powerful learning laboratories for the education of global citizens. To this end, the MHC International Internship Program (MHC-IIP) places highly qualified students as summer interns in select partner organizations around the world.

MHC International Internship Program
Research Institute for Asian Women
"My internship exceeded all of my expectations. It advanced my understanding of gender studies and has exposed me to the world of the publishing industry – editing, revising, drafting, working with faculty and independent scholars. I've learned how to work in a professional setting and to value learning that takes place outside the classroom."
