Liberal Arts & Sciences: Mathematics (A.S.)–This program is designed for students who intend to transfer to a baccalaureate program in mathematics, mathematics education (secondary), or a related applied field. Graduates of the program should be able to complete the baccalaureate degree in two years of additional full-time study. The program includes liberal arts courses to provide a broadbased general education, plus computer science and science courses to augment the extensive mathematics component. The mathematics core develops knowledge in three basic areas of mathematics learning: proof and theory, algorithms, and applications. The computer component develops important ancillary skills.
