The Mathematics ASC is designed for students interested in studying additional math, beyond what is required for their current degree program. Students in this program may opt for a broad study of math, taking a variety of 100-level courses such as Survey of Mathematics, Math for Elementary Teachers, or Statistics and College Algebra. This pathway offers students an opportunity to explore multiple areas of mathematics that will help them develop critical reasoning and quantitative skills to better understand the world around them.

Other students in this program may wish to pursue a path that will prepare them for further study in STEM fields, such as, but not limited to, Engineering, Computer Science, or Biology. These students may choose to take courses including College Algebra, Precalculus, as well as Calculus I, II, III, and IV. Taking these courses prior to transfer will allow students to fulfill STEM program prerequisite requirements as well as provide students an opportunity to learn higher level math in an environment with low class size and the support of dedicated teaching faculty.
