At Mount Holyoke College, being ahead of the curve is our legacy and our calling card: we have remained a women’s college by choice. We attract world-class faculty and students because we are different. Learning feels different here: It’s collaborative. It’s forward-thinking. It’s cognizant of the common good. It’s equal parts ambitious and audacious.

Mount Holyoke is committed to the success of its students. To that end, we offer rigorous, innovative academics and maintain robust facilities. We develop experiential learning and facilitate — and fund — internships both in the community and across the globe. And we connect students with mentors and role models through both our distinguished faculty and the College’s powerful network of 35,000 alumnae.
