Mathematics

Mathematics play an important role in the core functions of our society. Economists shape our financial stability, while cryptographers help protect our data infrastructures. If you are one of the unique individuals who are good at, and enjoy math, this is the program for you! Our program provides students with a solid foundation in basic mathematical principles. Studies include calculus, calculus-based physics and some computer programming.

Our Mathematics program prepares students for advanced studies or specialization at a 4-year institution. Students who obtain an Associate’s Degree may pursue careers such as, but not limited to, accountants, systems analyst, database administrator, bookkeeper, and financial analyst.
