# Mathematics Internship Opportunities

Internships are an excellent complement to classroom learning, and can be a valuable part of a student's education, especially with all of the exciting opportunities offered through our department and the Wasserman Center for Career Development .

An internship in Mathematics **will not **count towards the Math Major or Minor. The internship credit **will **count towards a student's overall degree.

The College of Arts and Sciences will allow students to take a total of 12 credits between Internships and Independent Studies, **but no more than 8 points may be taken in any one department.**

**Note: **Not all internships/employers require students to earn academic credit.

## MATH-UA 897, INTERNSHIP (OFFERED FALL AND SUMMER SESSION I)

2 or 4 Points (students may choose how many credits they register for). Undergraduate-level. **This course is graded Pass/Fail only**

Prerequisites: Permission of the department. Students must be a declared Math major, have a math GPA of 3.5 and an overall GPA of 3.0, and have at least 50% of the Math major courses completed.

An internship in mathematics is an excellent complement to formal course work. This is a great opportunity to explore different career options and gain hands-on experience. Internships are expected to have a substantial mathematical content, which could be through applications of mathematics to Finance, Economics, Computer Science, or Data Science.

## MATH-UA 898, INTERNSHIP (OFFERED SPRING AND SUMMER SESSION II)

2 or 4 Points (students may choose how many credits they register for). Undergraduate-level. **This course is graded Pass/Fail only**

Prerequisites: Permission of the department. Students must be a declared Math major, have a math GPA of 3.5 and an overall GPA of 3.0, and have at least 50% of the Math major courses completed.

**REGISTRATION**

Each student must fill out the MATH-UA 897/898 Internship Enrollment Request Form.

In order to be approved, we expect the internship to have meaningful mathematical content, either directly, or through data analysis, computer science or economics. If the student's internship is approved by faculty, the student will be registered for the internship course by a math advisor.

For F1 International Students: If the students' request for internship credit is approved by the department, students will be notified by their math advisor. At that time, students should submit their CPT request form via the OGS website. **Students should ****not submit ****their ****CPT request before getting approval for ****their ****internship from the department.**

**FINAL REPORT**

Students are **required** to submit a final report at the end of their internship. The final report is a scholarly document explaining what you have done in your internship and how you have benefitted from the internship.

- It must be at least 4 pages, written in your own words. It should include an abstract (a 50-70 word summary of the report), a bibliography, and citations for any words or ideas that are not your own.
- It must be approved by the student's supervisor, either by signing off on a paper copy of the report or by an e-mail stating that the report has been read and approved. Please have your supervisor email Adam Staszczuk at adamstas@cims.nyu.edu with your report and final grade.
- The report is due by the last day of classes.
**The grade for the internship cannot be assigned without the final report**.

Some questions that you might consider in writing your report:

- What projects did you work on, and how did you contribute?
- What problems did you encounter and how did you solve them?
- What impact did your internship have for the company or organization you worked for?
- How did you apply what you've learned in your classes? What classes were most helpful? What do you wish you had studied before your internship?
- What did you learn in the internship? What advice would you give to another student starting this internship?
- How has your internship benefitted you? How has it affected your plans for your studies? For your career?

**ELIGIBILITY**

**International Students: **For more information on policies and procedures, please reach out to the Office of Global Services or email ogs@nyu.edu.
