Why Go Abroad?
Amherst students may choose to work abroad for a wide variety of reasons. Some work abroad because they did not have a chance to study abroad during their academic career; others work abroad because their time abroad sparked an interest in working abroad. Some students choose to spend a summer working abroad before graduation; others choose to spend Interterm in a foreign country doing volunteer work or interning. Students may work abroad for the adventure, for the cultural experience, to improve language skills.
