Our hearts go out to all those affected by the closure of Cardinal Stritch University. To help those affected, we have created the CS Match program, where Cardinal Stritch students can transfer to Millikin with no additional out-of-pocket tuition costs.

A mathematics major will:

  • read and construct mathematical proofs in two advanced subject areas,
  • apply appropriate mathematical techniques to solve problems within mathematics and in extra-disciplinary contexts, and
  • complete a research project, including dissemination of the project’s findings.
