Special Opportunities

Students can take advantage of the many opportunities at Macalester to work closely with professors on research projects, and a few even co-author papers and present them at local, regional, or national meetings. All of the science departments at Macalester offer opportunities for intensive student summer projects, and extensive financial support is provided through special grant programs.

The Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science and Physics Departments offer courses in applied mathematics, circuit design, and various aspects of computer engineering.

Many students benefit from the college’s internship program and work in the industry full time during the summer or part time during the semester.
