Mathematics Designation

The Associate of Science degree with a designation in mathematics is a two-year program designed for you to graduate and transfer to a four-year institution to complete a bachelor’s degree in mathematics. You will explore calculus and computer/engineering applications. Mathematics is more than the study of counting and measurement, it includes the study of shapes and motion. Mathematicians look for patterns and use them to design new theories, new models and even predictions about nature. Career paths in mathematics include finance, engineering, computer science, coding, accounting, statistics and research.
