Mathematics is the foundation of many fields. Jobs for individuals with mathematical training are available in industry, education, and scientific research. The Mathematics Program is a liberal arts concentration, which provides the coursework necessary for the first two years of a four-year degree in mathematics or related areas such as statistics, mathematics education, actuarial science, applied technology, natural science or applied math.
The primary goal of the Liberal Arts-Mathematics curriculum is to prepare students to transfer to a four-year institution as third-year students in a mathematics or math-related program. In addition to the required mathematics courses, the program includes courses in English, science, humanities and social science, thereby giving the student a background in the different areas of liberal arts.
All Liberal Arts-Mathematics students are required to study calculus and differential equations. Students interested in math education can apply to be tutors in the math lab. Articulation meetings are held with neighboring colleges and universities to ensure optimal transferability.
The two-year curriculum in Liberal Arts-Mathematics is a liberal arts concentration, meaning that the successful student can transfer to a four-year school to complete the requirements of a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics or a related field. For those students who are unable to continue their education, careful selection of electives under faculty advisement can make job market entry more viable.
