At Gordon, academics build a career.

Some days your classroom might be an internship in downtown Boston or the Biotech Corridor, a research project in the Great Marsh in nearby Essex, art-making in an ancient convent in the Italian countryside or working with a human rights organization in Zagreb, Croatia. Confidence and skills are built through challenge, so a lot of learning happens by doing.
