Math Degree Programs

Mathematics, Associate in Science Degree

The program is designed to award the Associate in Science degree to those students who have completed a specialization in mathematics. The requirements were chosen to optimize student preparation for upper division coursework for a Bachelor’s degree in mathematics at a four-year institution. The degree program offers training in both pure and applied mathematics leading to career in research, education, business, industry, and government. In addition, many areas, such as the physical and biological sciences, engineering, business, finance and economics depend upon the use of mathematics in developing solutions to practical problems.

Mathematics, Associate in Arts Degree

The program is designed to award the Associate in Arts degree to those students who have completed a specialization in mathematics. This degree program is intended to meet the needs of mathematics students who do not require a science component for their degree. The requirements were chosen to optimize student preparation for upper division coursework at a four-year institution leading to a minor in mathematics or a Bachelor’s degree in a field related to mathematics. The degree program offers training in both pure and applied mathematics leading to careers in research, business, industry, and government. In addition, many areas, such as accounting, actuarial science, finance, management, and operations research depend upon the use of mathematics in developing solutions to practical problems.

Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer

The Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer degree is designed to award an Associate in Science degree to those who are intending to transfer to the California State University system in mathematics. The Associate in Mathematics for Transfer degree is intended to meet the needs of mathematics students who do not require significant coursework in the sciences to complete their degree. The requirements for the Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer degree were chosen solely to meet the requirements for the Transfer Model Curriculum in Mathematics and may not be adequate preparation for transfer to institutions outside of the California State University System.
