International Internships and Research

The Possibilities

A summer internship or research project abroad can be a powerful and transformative experience. By applying what they learn in the classroom in a professional setting and a new cultural context, students are pushed to see their MHC coursework, their career plans, and themselves from a new and expanded perspective. Insights gained abroad enrich academic pursuits upon return to MHC, and newfound skills leave students better equipped for career.
