## Mathematics, Associate in ScienceThe Associate in Science Degree in Mathematics provides a foundation for students preparing to transfer to a four-year program in many Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields. Coursework includes a minimum of three semesters of calculus and additional coursework in college-level mathematics and/or closely related fields. Students may choose these additional courses (from an approved list) to best fit their academic and career goals. Program Learning Outcomes - 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.
- 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.
- 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: - San Joaquin Delta College Associate Degree General Education (AA-GE) pattern (24 units)
- 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.
