Official Title of Major: Mathematics, A.S.

Award: Associate of Science degree, A.S.

Code: AS.MATH.MATH

Total Credit Hours: 60

About the Department of Mathematics

Purpose: Prepares for transfer to a four-year institution and a major in mathematics or other subjects which require a strong mathematics background. Prepares also for further study in business, engineering, mathematics, physical sciences, or statistics. Develops skills in analyzing and interpreting problems, computer-based problem solving, and using mathematical reasoning to further the scientific method.

Range of Occupations

  • With continued study after transfer, a mathematics degree may lead to positions in actuarial science, computer science, cryptology, demography, econometrics, engineering, mathematics, mathematics education, the physical sciences, or statistics.

Honors Program Courses


If you qualify for the Honors Program, you may take honors versions  of some courses (such as ENG 101H , ENG 102H , etc.).

Additional General Education requirements: 6 credits


Program Requirements: 25 credits


Electives: 9 Credits


Choose from the list below. Consult with an Academic Advisor when selecting your electives to ensure transferability to your chosen 4-year institution.

Diversity Requirement


All students in associate degree programs must satisfy the Diversity Requirement . In many cases, students may satisfy this requirement simultaneously as they satisfy a general education course requirement or with an elective. 

Wellness Requirement


Unless they are in a degree that is exempt, all students in associate degree programs must satisfy the Wellness Requirement . In many cases, students may satisfy this requirement simultaneously as they satisfy a general education course requirement or with an elective.

Program Outcomes


Upon successful completion of this program, students will be able to:

  1. Use the vocabulary and notation of higher-level mathematics to communicate mathematically.
  2. Create and interpret mathematical relations and functions through graphical, numerical, and symbolic processes.
  3. Evaluate and use appropriate higher-level mathematical techniques (e.g., calculus, linear algebra, differential equations) and technology to solve problems.
  4. Apply mathematical principles to analyze real-world problems in mathematically dependent fields. 

This program aligns with all the college’s core competencies.
