Many students expand their knowledge and skill sets through internship experiences off campus. This type of introduction to working in the field is very beneficial for students interested in getting jobs in the public sector after college. The MCSP department will work with you to find meaningful internship experiences with local and national organizations.

Recent internships include:

"my professors set up an internship for me with NASA that helped me land my first job. What helps me do my job, though, is the broad-based education I got at Roanoke. i don't only need to analyze numbers, I need to be able to present my findings. Because I have a liberal arts education, I'm known as the math person who can actually talk to other people."  - Ashley MacFarlane
