Welcome to the Mathematics Department
The Mathematics Department at SXU strives to build a strong sense of community among faculty and undergraduate students in exploring the beauty and importance of mathematics. All math courses are taught at the Chicago campus where students can enjoy small classes with approachable and caring faculty.
Our faculty members are dedicated to excellence in teaching and scholarship. The broad range of faculty research interests in mathematics and mathematics education includes: abstract algebra, applied mathematics, solitary waves theory, developmental mathematics, differential geometry, discrete mathematics, history of mathematics, numerical analysis, probability and statistics, representation theory of finite dimensional algebras, mathematical knowledge for teaching, and processes by which mathematics teachers incorporate technology into their teaching.
Programs of Study
The Mathematics Department offers a range of programs that fit the needs of not only Mathematics majors but also the needs of general education students and candidates for teacher licensure. The department offers majors in Mathematics, Actuarial Science and Mathematics with Secondary Education. It also offers a minor in Mathematics.
The best way to learn more about our programs is to come visit our department. Sit in on a class. Meet our faculty, current students and members of the SXU Math Club. See our classrooms, computer labs and our beautiful campus.

"I'm challenged intellectually and as a person working within my department. I thoroughly enjoy and look forward to the various colloquiums from professors, events held by the math department, and the rigorous classes that are offered. Being here has strengthened my belief that mathematics is the purest and most beautiful form of the human spirit. I've learned various geometries, tools in calculus, abstract algebra, cryptography, string theory, and more. Mathematics is bewitching, and with a faculty that knows how to engage with students and opens their minds to the beauty in logic, students can begin their lifelong love affair with math."
