CCI Summer Programs

The Center for Careers and Internships offers a host of summer programs to students. These programs most often include an academic and/or professional development curriculum that helps students understand the theme more systemically and more formally learn from one another.

Some of Middlebury’s current signature summer programs include:

Japan Summer Service-Learning Program

The Japan Summer Service-Learning Program (JSSL) is a collaborative, intercultural service-learning program that brings together undergraduates from Middlebury, International Christian University (ICU), and multiple member universities of the Service-Learning Asia Network. Participating students work, learn, and engage with local residents in the Tokyo metropolitan region as well as in Tenryumura - a small village in the mountains of Nagano Prefecture.


Personal Health Insurance:

In order to be certain that students will be assisted in meeting the unexpected and sometimes heavy expense of an illness or accident, Middlebury College requests all students to have personal health insurance. If you do not already have health insurance that will provide coverage while at Middlebury, you should obtain coverage prior to arrival on campus. International students, in particular, should ascertain that their health insurance is valid in the U.S.

Lessons from an octopus: student studies invertebrate learning [video]

As senior Alexa Warburton opens the door to the cephalopod lab, a pungent smell escapes into the third-floor hallway of Middlebury College’s McCardell Bicentennial Hall. “It smells like the ocean,” she comments. And it should. Warburton, a senior biology major from Hopkinton, N.H., is spending her summer studying a member of the cephalopod family, Octopus bimaculoides . Her goal is to study the way these saltwater creatures learn, thereby furthering the already-extensive body of research on invertebrate intelligence.
