The Associate of Science degree with emphasis in mathematics prepares students to transfer to a university for a major in mathematics, statistics, applied mathematics, or mathematics education. Statistics trains students in analysis of data. Employment is often found in insurance companies, research, and government. Applied mathematics emphasizes applications and computer programming and prepares students to find employment in business, engineering, manufacturing, transportation equipment industries and government agencies devoted to research. Mathematics education also prepares students to teach at the secondary level. The Associate of Arts and Associate of Science are transfer degrees and are awarded without designation of major, but do follow curriculum transfer plans.  These degrees indicate that a student has completed a course of study that is essentially equivalent to the first two years of a baccalaureate degree.

PLEASE NOTE: When selecting courses, students should consult the catalog of the school to which they intend to transfer.  They should then work with their DCC advisor to assure that the proper classes are being taken at DCC.  Together, the student and the advisor will select courses that will fit into the program at the transfer institution.
