This major prepares students for upper division course  work leading to a bachelor's degree in mathematics or a  mathematics-related area. Upon completion of the appropriate bachelor's  degree, graduates are qualified for entry-level positions in actuarial  science, statistics, applied mathematics, operations research, economic  forecasting, teaching, and graduate study.

Graduates of this program are able to

  • accurately interpret and translate pictorial and descriptive information into mathematical statements;
  • solve problems quantitatively and communicate results clearly;
  • demonstrate understanding of functions, limits, differentiation and integration, as appropriate;
  • demonstrate computational skills in areas of applied mathematics.

Although students completing this degree typically transfer to a 4-year institution with the intention of completing a Bachelor's program, they may be employed as teaching assistants or science technicians.
