Internships

Typically there are 40+ internships that are made available to our students annually. Internships are based on availability and employer needs, so at no time is an internship a guarantee. However, the Department of Statistics will continue to work with students within our program to help obtain internships while developing the student's statistical knowledge to help further them along. Degree program advisors will be able to further assist you with the the process of obtaining available internships and registering for the appropriate internship course and credit hours. 

International students on a F-1 visa who are seeking an internship must follow the guidelines outlined on the International Student and Scholar Services website to obtain their CPT status. 

Available internships range from both on-campus and off-campus and can encompass a wide variety of specific fields or industries.
