Internships for Credit

Internships aren't required for a math and stats major, but they can help you get a job after graduation. Once you've achieved junior class standing, you're eligible to take an internship for credit. Generally, internships involve about 50 hours of field work for each credit, so about 150 hours for a three-credit internship; this is about 10 hours per week during a regular semester. Internships are to follow these expectations:

Internship Grading

Internships are graded based on the quality of performance and the quality of the final paper.

Supervised Internship

The off-campus internship supervisor is expected to oversee your work and ensure the position offers educational value and a good experience.

Faculty Mentor

A faculty mentor on campus oversees the internship, meets periodically with the student during the semester, reviews written work and submits a grade.

Write About It

The intern completes a paper evaluating their experience during the internship and connecting internship experience with material learned in traditional classes.
