The A.S. degree in Mathematics is an academic transfer program for students intending to complete a bachelor's degree
in mathematics. The program is designed to give students a broad exposure to calculus, statistics, discrete math,
computer science and linear algebra in order to prepare them to transfer to a four-year institution.
Mathematical concepts are employed wherever there are problems that involve quantity, structure, space, or change. Mathematicians generally use deductive reasoning, starting from axioms and definitions, to solve problems from business, industry, other sciences or from within mathematics itself. Although some jobs are open to mathematicians with a bachelor's degree, most require a graduate degree. Mathematicians typically find careers as actuaries, analysts, consultants, educators, programmers, or researchers.
The program is designed to result in an associate's degree in mathematics and meets the general education requirements at all Idaho public universities. Course selection should be coordinated to meet the requirements for your intended transfer institution.
