Wasbash and Auditorium buildings
Location: Chicago
Start Term: Fall, Spring, Summer
Program Type: Major, Minor, Accelerated Masters Option

A concentration in statistics is available, and students who wish to become high school mathematics teachers take a specialized set of electives along with a minor in secondary education.

Students interested in teaching high school mathematics can apply for a NOYCE Scholarship.

Mathematics majors in the College of Arts and Sciences can participate in the Mathematics, BA to Secondary Education, MA Accelerated Program leading to a BA in Mathematics and a Master of Arts degree in Secondary Education. The program allows students to take three graduate-level education courses as part of their undergraduate degrees. Once students are admitted to the MA in Secondary Education, the courses will apply toward completion of the MA degree.

What Differentiates Us



Roosevelt holds an annual mathematics conference - the Math x-Position - where you can present your work, hear a career panel, and learn more about interesting mathematical topics. Our students also travel to mathematics conferences and competitions; more than forty have done so over the past six years.



We have an inclusive and diverse community. Unlike other large institutions, all classes at Roosevelt are capped at 30 students, allowing for individualized focus on your personal growth.

Grad Hat


You can prepare for your career by adding a secondary education minor, a computer science minor, or a finance minor, among others.



You can have a mini-internship experience in our Industrial Modeling course where you work on a team to solve a data science problem for an industrial partner.

Scholarship Opportunities

Roosevelt has scholarships available for students who are preparing to become high school math and science teachers through our NOYCE program.  The NOYCE program prepares students to become highly qualified teachers in high need schools.

Expectations & Requirements


Mathematics has long been recognized as an essential tool for developing theory and research in a broad range of quantitative fields. The study of mathematics provides training in disciplined thought and analysis. Mathematicians create new theories and techniques using the latest technology and solve economic, scientific, engineering, and business problems using mathematical knowledge and computational tools. Our mathematics majors will experience an intellectual community with other students. Students have the opportunity to connect mathematics to the world by working on calculus-based modeling projects and on an intensive modeling project with an industrial partner.

Minor Requirements

The mathematics minor is an excellent addition to a quantitative major such as the sciences, social sciences, computer science, or business. Students take calculus and have the flexibility to choose from a variety of electives.

Sample Courses

  • Calculus I-III
  • Discrete Structures
  • Linear Algebra
  • Real Analysis
  • Data Mining
  • Geometry
  • Abstract Algebra
  • Statistics
  • Industrial Modeling

Clubs & Activities

We offer an active Math Club, a colloquium series in mathematics and statistics, a day-long conference (the Math x-Position) each fall, and the Roosevelt Lectures in Math each spring. Majors have the opportunity to become tutors, and we have a mathematics tutoring and study room. Students attend and present at regional conferences.


Melanie Pivarski

We believe it is important to provide students with excellence in a supportive environment in mathematics, and to also provide the opportunity for students to acquire a lasting, positive and useful influence in all of their present and future endeavors.
