Capstone Experience


The Capstone Experience is a 3-credit requirement for all Mathematics and Statistics majors.  The Capstone may be satisfied in several ways, including, but not limited to, completing an internship and a reflective essay, participating in a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU), or completing MATH/STAT 5810.  Other means of satisfying the requirement may be developed on an individual basis between the student and their faculty advisor.
