Mathematics, Associate in Science for Transfer

The AS-T degree in Mathematics is designed specifically for the student preparing to transfer to a similar major at California State University (CSU) campuses. The study of mathematics improves the student's critical thinking and problem solving skills. A degree in mathematics opens doors to careers in many fields including engineering, medicine, actuarial science, research, computer science and education. Coursework includes a minimum of three semesters of calculus and additional courses in college-level mathematics and/or closely related fields.

Minimum Units Required: 60

Program Learning Outcomes

  1. As a result of earning an AS degree in mathematics, students will demonstrate appropriate proficiency with the language of mathematics both through their use of vocabulary and notation and through their ability to understand mathematics written and/or spoken by others.
  2. As a result of earning an AS degree in mathematics, students will have the necessary foundation in integral and differential calculus to transfer to a 4-year institution and achieve a degree in a STEM-related field.
  3. As a result of earning an AS degree in mathematics, students will be able to analyze a situation, choose mathematical constructs best suited to model the situation and propose an appropriate solution or conclusion.

General Education

Complete one of the following general education patterns:

  • California State University General Education (CSU-GE) pattern (40 units)
  • Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum - CSU Version (IGETC-CSU) pattern (37 units)

Students are advised to double-count courses in the major to also satisfy general education when possible. Course subject credit will be awarded in satisfaction of major and lower division general education requirements, but the units will only be counted once in computing the total number of units for the degree.
