MATH 185 - (MA) Mathematics InternshipSemester Hours: 1-6
Mathematics majors who have been offered an internship may receive credit through this course if approved by the chairperson of the mathematics department. The internship must be training for a position in which a college degree would be necessary for full-time employment and in which a major in mathematics would be considered beneficial. The number of s.h. depends on the type of work and on the number of hours worked and will be determined by the chairperson.
MATH 073 , students must be mathematics majors with an overall GPA of 3.0 or better and mathematics GPA of 3.0 or better. May be repeated for credit up to 6 s.h. Generally, students can expect to receive 1 s.h. per 28 hours worked. At the end of the semester, students will write and present a paper on the role of mathematics in the internship position. Students will be expected to keep a journal on their experience and to meet with the faculty mentor assigned to the course a minimum of three times to review the journal and paper preparations. Semester hours earned count toward general degree requirements but do not satisfy mathematics major requirements. Final grades will include both on-site and academic work. An on-site evaluation of “poor” will result in a final grade no higher than “C”.
