Introduction to Careers in Science and Technology — Hosted by the Loeb Center

Are you fascinated by the world around you? Do you like asking questions and finding creative ways to find their solutions? Do you want to explore new ideas no one has thought of before?

The fields of science and technology and associated areas of engineering and mathematics offer opportunities in both the "classic" STEM areas, as well as new paths that are expanding daily as new discoveries are made.

Come join Dr. Carolyn Margolin, Director of the Loeb Center's Careers In Science and Technology Program, as she discusses the range of opportunities in the STEM fields and how Amherst students can best prepare for them. Regardless of experience level, attendees will leave this session with an understanding of:
· potential career trajectories
· industry timelines for internships and jobs, and
· Loeb Center resources designed to support your search.

Zoom Info Session: Study to Oxford and Cambridge in 2021-2022

Study abroad to Oxford or Cambridge can be an excellent enhancement to your Amherst academic experience! With the tutorial style of teaching, study to the Oxbridge colleges (small colleges make up the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge) is often compared to graduate study. Students take tutorials with expert “tutors,” faculty and final year PhD students, and strengthen their research, writing, and oral argument skills.  In addition to this unique and challenging academic environment, students have the opportunity to live alongside local students and participate fully in college life. This session will teach you the ways you can apply for study to Oxford or Cambridge, e.g., direct enrollment, through a provider, and you will also learn what special arrangements we have, i.e., New College at Oxford. Students who have studied abroad will also be attending and share with you their perspective. Application deadlines to study at Oxford or Cambridge are earlier in the year than most study abroad programs and attending this session will provide you with timelines, deadlines, and other important details.
