Computational Mathematics Learning Opportunities

Numerous learning opportunities give you the freedom to continue your education outside of the classroom. Whether it’s living in a residence hall with others in your program, or pursuing an internship at a local business, you’ll build camaraderie with your peers and professors while expanding your knowledge and having a great time.

While internships aren’t required as part of this degree, they’re a great way to gain hands-on experience and get a feel for what you could do after graduation. The Fargo-Moorhead community is home to dozens of businesses that can utilize your skills to advance both the company and your real-world education.

Is there an area of math or computer science you’d enjoy investigating in depth? You can pursue credits outside of the classroom for individual study, projects or research. Talk with your professor to discuss the possibility of independent study.

As part of Math Club, you’ll discover just how much fun math can be. Math Club provides a social venue for you to discuss, learn and teach math at biweekly meetings, social gatherings and community activities. You’ll also hear from guest speakers, including professors who discuss their research interests and alumni working in the industry, teaching or attending graduate school.
