Mathematics is a dynamic and developing field of study. It is the foundation and language of all scientific endeavors. Mathematics contributes in direct and important ways to business, finance, engineering, health, and public policy.

A degree in Mathematics or Statistics provides many challenging and rewarding career opportunities. These include teaching, research in engineering fields, molecular structures, genetics and medicine, robotics, digital imagery, computer aided design, economic forecasting, and environmental design and modeling.

Mathematics Courses

  • All prerequisite courses must be completed with grades of “C” or better.
  • Two years of high school algebra means “Algebra I and Algebra II.”
  • It is strongly recommended that students without recent math coursework complete the matriculation assessment process.
  • Contact the Assessment Center for further information.

Alternatives to Traditional Lecture Format for Algebra: Some instructors teach algebra using a traditional lecture format while others use platforms that require the use of a computer and/or the Internet.

Mathematics for Transfer

AS-T Degree

The Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer (AS-T) degree includes curriculum focusing on the mastery of calculus, linear algebra and differential equations. Students will master these concepts using algebraic and visual models in pure and applied contexts and be able to communicate mathematically.

The Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer degree prepares students to transfer into the CSU system to complete a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics. Students completing the Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer degree and meeting the CSU minimum eligibility requirements are guaranteed admission to the CSU system, but not to a particular campus or major. Upon transfer, students will be required to complete no more than 60 units to earn a bachelor’s degree.

To earn the Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer degree, students must complete 60 CSU-transferable semester units with a grade point average of at least 2.0, including:

  • completion of the major requirements with grades of C or better; and
  • certified completion of either the California State University General Education Breadth pattern, or the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum.

It is highly recommended that, prior to transferring, students complete courses that satisfy the CSU United States History, Constitution and American Ideals graduation requirement. In all cases, students should consult with a counselor for more information on university admission and transfer requirements.

Mathematics

A.A. or A.S. Degree

The Mathematics major recognizes a concentration in the field of Mathematics. Successful completion of the curriculum in Mathematics and the associated electives prepare Mathematics students for transfer to four-year colleges or universities. The program in Mathematics outlined below is typical of lower-division requirements for four-year colleges and universities: some requirements vary from college to college. Students are advised to meet with a counselor before selecting courses for appropriate campus specific course requirements.
