Department of Mathematics

Welcome to the Department of Mathematics
The Department of Mathematics at Saint Joseph's University shapes its mission around the classical and modern aspects of the discipline, emphasizing both the practical and the theoretical. It is our goal to train students to be careful, precise, and mature thinkers. As faculty, we strive to give our students the intellectual preparation they need to apply what they have learned, to communicate it to others, and to continue their education for the rest of their lives.

The Department of Mathematics offers a B.S. degree in mathematics, a B.S. degree in actuarial science, and several mathematics education programs, including a five-year B.S./M.S. program in mathematics and secondary education.

We have many exciting opportunities for students to explore. You will find some of them contained in these web pages.  For example, we’ve included information about the career paths of our past graduates, about research and internship opportunities, and about the many activities our department offers for students.
