Students after one year of coursework are eligible to participate in an internship with a sponsoring company, hospital, or federal agency. The internships are generally a semester’s stay at the sponsor’s site. If a student participates in one of the internship programs approved by the department head, then:
- The student is given credit for one hour of STAT 684.
- In many cases, work done during the internship may be used as the basis for a Master’s project. However, this project must be completed under the supervision of the chairperson of the student’s advisory committee.
