One of the best ways to flesh out your résumé is to complete an internship either on campus in one of our faculty’s research labs or off-campus at a hospital, doctor’s office, research lab or business. Internships can be during the academic year or summer, for credit or not for credit, paid or volunteer. Very often these internships lead to a job after graduation.
To help you find a local internship, the Dean’s Office has compiled a list of internship opportunities that is updated regularly.
Summer Research Internship Award Program
Each summer three to five students with a major in one of the School’s programs receives a $2,270 (4 weeks) or a $4,540 (8 weeks) stipend for staying on campus and working with a faculty member on a research project.

Career Mentoring Network
Check out our Career Mentor Listing (.xlsx file) for a list of available mentors from the School of Natural Science and Mathematics.
The Science Department, Math & Computer Science Department, Psychology Department, and Learning Services all employ a number of students to assist instructors. Learning Services hires Peer Tutors and coordinates volunteer note takers for students with learning differences. The Science Department employs lab aides who help set up and clean up lab activities and assist the lab instructor during lab. Other students work as supplemental instructors by holding group or one-on-one tutoring sessions. In math and computer science, students can serve as peer mentors for Veritas math (VTMA 111). During class, peer mentors help guide student groups on interesting problems and aid the instructor. Outside of class, peer mentors hold help and review sessions. Math and computer science students are also encouraged to become peer tutors. In Psychology, some students work in the vivarium, feeding, watering and in general maintaining the research animals and equipment, while others work as research assistants or office aids.
WSTEM Mentoring Program
The WSTEM Mentoring Program pairs women in STEM majors at the Mount with established professionals working in the field to serve as their mentor. The Mount student then gives back to the program by mentoring a local middle school girl interested in STEM fields.
SNSM graduates are exceptional because so many of them are leaders – people who make a difference. We encourage our students to be involved in activities outside of the classroom and there are numerous opportunities within our School as well as across the University. These extracurricular activities complement classroom learning, help you recharge your batteries, and look great on a résumé. Some of the student groups within the SNSM are:
