Liberal Arts and Science: Mathematics Option

This program constitutes the first two years of a traditional four-year curriculum. It is designed for students with a strong interest in mathematics and its applications, who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university as a mathematics major or a related field. Students gain experience in the use of graphing calculators and computer software. Graduates are highly competitive as mathematics majors at four-year institutions. *Students interested in teaching high school Mathematics should enroll in the Secondary Education in Mathematics (SEM.AS) degree.   Apply & Register Program Details

Program Goals

  • To provide students with a foundation in general education.
  • To provide a concentration of course work appropriate for mathematics.
  • To ensure transferability of course work to a baccalaureate program in mathematics, engineering, computer science or math education.

Program Student Learning Outcomes

At the end of the program, the graduate will be able to:

  1. Utilize computational and analytical skills in conjunction with mathematical concepts to solve abstract mathematics problems and applied problems in the fields of science, business, engineering and technology.
  2. Use technological tools, such as graphing calculators or computers, to analyze and solve mathematical and applied problems.
  3. Follow a logical, symbolic argument and apply the concept of proof, as it relates to mathematical results.

Special Program Information

The entry-level math course for the Mathematics Option is Calculus I (MTH-140). Please note that a solid foundation in algebra and trigonometry is essential for success in Calculus I. Students in need of additional training prior to Calculus I have the option of taking the Precalculus Mathematics I (MTH-123) and Precalculus Mathematics II (MTH-124) sequence, or the faster paced Accelerated Precalculus (MTH-125).
