Faculty are constantly doing research in various topics. As early as in your freshman year, you can ask to be part of that research. Also, undergraduate research projects may earn academic credit (either as Directed Study, Undergraduate Research, or Honors Thesis) and may involve work during the semester or summer.
Internship and Co-op Opportunities
Math students have broad access to internships and co-ops. Math teaches critical thinking skills needed in every domain. The ability to use and interpret data is also an essential skill. Our students have engaged in opportunities at many national research laboratories and research facilities around the world, as well as in a broad collection of businesses.
