Mathematics

Program Description:  The Associate of Science degree in Mathematics provides students with the general education and mathematics courses normally taken in the first two years of a mathematics program at a four-year college or university while providing the flexibility for individual interests. The Accounting degree is based on the 42-hour Core Curriculum, and represents the first two years of a four-year degree which vary from university to university. Students transferring should always consult with an advisor or articulation officer from their receiving institution.
