Program Overview

Associate of Science Degree for Transfer (AS-T) in Mathematics
The Associate of Science Degree for Transfer (AS-T) in Mathematics is designed for students planning to transfer with a major in mathematics. The student will acquire the ability to apply the principles of differential and integral calculus of one and several variables, differential equations, and linear algebra. Competencies will be assessed through problem solving involving limits; derivatives and integrals of real and vector-valued functions of one and several variables; areas and volumes; line, surface, and volume integrals; numerical methods; sequences and series; ordinary differential equations; power series solutions; Laplace transforms; eigenvectors; vector spaces; and application problems.

Students who successfully complete the Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer will be guaranteed admission to a California State University. The AS degree in Mathematics meets the requirements of SB1440 for Associate Degrees for Transfer. The degrees were developed to ease the transfer process for students to the CSU.

Associate of Arts in Mathematics
The Associate of Arts degree in Mathematics includes coursework that aligns with specific lower-division major requirements for the Mathematics major at various universities within the University of California (UC) and California State University (CSU) systems. Students interested in transferring to a four-year college or university with a major in Mathematics are encouraged to visit the Transfer Center for complete information regarding transfer requirements for the institution of their choice. Students interested in transfer are also encouraged to consult the Counseling Office for individualized educational planning.
