Mathematics for Transfer (2013-2014)

Mathematics and related subjects play important dual roles in our culture. Although mathematics is a study in its own right, it is also an indispensible tool for expressing and understanding ideas in the sciences, engineering and an increasing number of other fields. Students completing this degree will be able to construct appropriate models of natural phenomena, develop those models with appropriate mathematical techniques and interpret results of those models.

The Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer Degree (AS-T) will prepare students to transfer to California State Universities (CSUs). Students who complete the AS-T degree will be ensured preferential transfer status to many CSUs as mathematics majors and/or majors in related disciplines. The AS-T degree requirements will fulfill the lower division major requirements at many CSUs. Students are advised, however, to meet with a counselor to assess the course requirements for a specific CSU.
