Internships and Summer Opportunities

for Mathematics Students

There are many outstanding internship and other summer opportunities that allow mathematics students to apply and expand their knowledge in an academic, business or other professional setting as they earn money.  Below are listed several such opportunities; if there are others that should appear here, then please mention them to Prof. Calvis of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science of Baldwin-Wallace College.

Note that B-WC students may also earn academic credit for their internship experiences under the Field Experience/Internship Program sponsored by the Office of Career Services.
