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.

(1) Students who do not qualify for MAT 122 Calculus II must seek advisement for math placement and should note that placement into any course below MAT 122 Calculus II implies that more than four semesters will be required to complete the degree program.

(2) A student who chooses a 2-credit Health elective (such as HED 201) must also complete 4 additional elective credits for a total of 66 total credits. A 3-credit Health elective only requires 3 additional elective credits for a total of 66 credits.

(3) Any course offered by the College may be taken, but no math courses numbered MAT 122 Calculus II or lower may be used.
