Mathematics Experiential Learning Requirement

The undergraduate experiential learning requirements for the mathematics major at Rockhurst University can be satisfied by either of the following courses:

  • by completing an off-campus internship/work experience (in an approved, mathematically related field) together with at least one credit hour of the Career Services course, CP 3910 - Co-op Work Projects I
  • by completing an undergraduate research project (with a mathematics faculty advisor) together with the one credit hour course, MT 3990 - Introductory Research Projects

All students will present the results of their experiential learning project in the one-credit-hour mathematics seminar, MT 4960.

Suggested timeline

At the end of your sophomore year choose an advisor and the way you will satisfy the experiential learning requirement.

By the fall of your junior year, finalize a project plan with your advisor. Your project must contain significant mathematics content comparable to (or beyond) the 3000 and 4000 level courses you have taken in your major. 

In the spring of your senior year enroll in the mathematics seminar, MT 4960.
