Students completing an Associate in Science in Mathematics are prepared to transfer to an upper division baccalaureate program in mathematics, statistics, or mathematics education.
More and more, employers are looking for applicants who are good thinkers. General problem-solving skills, the ability to synthesize information and reason logically, rather than narrow technical expertise, are seen as an advantage for employment.
