At Amherst, we set our students and graduates on a path to be engaged, effective, and innovative problem-solvers in their communities and workplaces. We support learning, inquiry, and action — inside and outside of the curriculum. “Learning by doing” takes many forms:
We believe that community and friendships are an important part not only of college life, but of learning. Our students can choose from a wide range of immersive experiences, either independently or with a group or class. From trekking to Boston to learn about climate action careers, to spending the summer building a robot (named Eugene, who plays soccer), to traveling with a class to the rainforests of Costa Rica, Amherst students explore their ideas — and the world — together.
On course-specific, College-funded trips, Amherst students go deeper into their studies while forging new friendships.Read More
Amherst students work side-by-side with professors conducting important research. We provide opportunities during the school year and the summer, both paid and unpaid, and offer funding for theses.
Our collaborative workspaces have tools and resources to support every kind of innovative endeavor — entrepreneurial, artistic, scholarly, civic, or all the above. Work with friends or independently.
