Life Sciences, Applied Computing and Applied Mathematics are far greater than just academic subjects to be studied on campus. Careers in these fields include analytical work in biomedical laboratories, network and database engineering and systems analyst. Internships offer Mathematical and Natural Sciences students the opportunity to explore potential careers at off - campus sites.
Internships are designed to match the interests and goals of an individual student to the opportunities available at the internship site. The details of every internship are specified in an agreement signed by the student, the person who will supervise the student at the internship site, the faculty member who sponsors the internship and assigns the grade, and the Director.
The New College has on-going internship agreements with companies and agencies in the Phoenix metropolitan area, but Mathematical and Natural Sciences students are not limited to those programs. The flexibility of the internship program allows students to discover and develop their own internships as well. The Career Services office in UCB has reference books that list careers in the sciences. In addition, they have notebooks with the names and addresses of people in the community who have volunteered to provide advice and assistance to ASU West students. By using these resources you can identify an area in which you would like to do an internship, and find someone in the community who will either sponsor you or help you to find a sponsor.
