Internship and Careers

Students in the Department of Mathematics have the opportunity to work closely with the Center for Career and Professional Success when searching for experiential learning opportunities such as internships, volunteer positions, or off-campus research positions. Career Services is available to help students with resume review, cover letter review, assistance with the experiential learning search process, and other services.
