Conducting collaborative research, whether at Macalester or elsewhere, provides a chance to apply what you have been learning in class and lab.  It is also a great way to explore career pathways in math and science.  There are many different opportunities on campus, around the country, and around the world.

When making plans for the summer, we suggest that students apply to many different opportunities, both on and off campus, and consider other types of opportunities (e.g., internships, shadowing, volunteering) as well.
