Gain real-world experience and build a more impressive resume.
Students who have completed their junior year have a wide range of opportunities to participate in the internship program during the summer or the academic year. Internships focus on providing real-world experience in small and large companies or in government or service organizations. Students work closely with a site supervisor and a faculty mentor to apply coursework to the corporate setting, gaining invaluable experience outside the classroom. These opportunities often lead to employment after graduation.
Additional Field Experience
Students may also attend mathematics conventions to gain experience in their field. Jennifer Weinberg '02 presented a paper at the regional undergraduate mathematics conference. The paper was based on her research on the effects of the sociocultural climate of mathematics classrooms on participation and achievement in mathematics.
