OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM

Hands-on education in the field awaits you too. Internships provide you with practical experience while you’re still in college. The Office of Career Services and the American Mathematical Society can point you to internship opportunities in math. Conducting undergraduate research gives you the chance to deeply examine a math-related topic of your choice. Recent students have researched fractals and the expected value of casino roulette. Internships and research can make your graduate school application or résumé stand out.

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES
