Mathematics Major (60 Credit Hours)

The problem-solving, logical reasoning, and critical thinking skills taught in mathematics prepare students for a great number of job opportunities in areas such as science, technology, engineering, industry, and education. This degree prepares students to transfer to a university at the junior level where they can complete a bachelor’s (4 year) degree in mathematics. It can also help students prepare for advanced (master’s or above) degrees in business, law, or medicine. Unlike the AS-T degree, the AS degree’s general education requirements are not specifically matched to those for CSU’s.
