Loyola University Chicago's Department of Mathematics and Statistics strives to enable students to develop powers of critical reasoning and logic in the context of mathematical structures and to give them the practical skills they need for finding rewarding careers in an ever-changing job market.

The recent breakthrough in the solution of Fermat's Last Theorem has dramatically underscored the dynamic and exciting nature of modern mathematics. In an era of global economic competition, talented and creative students must prepare now for their roles in helping the United States maintain its lead in basic research in science and mathematics.
