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.

EVALUATION

SUPERVISOR EVALUATION

Each student's supervisor must complete an evaluation of the student. At the end of the semester, the supervisor will be instructed to complete an evaluation form to be sent directly back to the department.

ELIGIBILITY

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