Associate of Science


Environmental Science and Policy

The mathematics track is a transfer program that provides the first two years of a bachelor's degree in mathematics.

Program Outcomes

Upon completion of this program, a student will be able to:

  • Effectively communicate the concepts of single and multivariable calculus, differential equations, and linear algebra using appropriate mathematical language.
  • Apply mathematical approaches from single and/or multivariable calculus, differential equations, and linear algebra to analyze and solve problems in mathematics and other disciplines.
  • Appropriately use current mathematical software, such as Matlab or MAPLE, for tasks in multivariable calculus, differential equations, and/or linear algebra.

Program Advising Guide

Meet with your academic advisor regularly to discuss your academic plans and make sure you are on track to graduate and/or transfer. The program advising guide outlines the degree requirements and is meant to supplement the advising process.

Transfer Opportunities

MC has a long history of successfully preparing students for transfer to four-year institutions. See all transfer agreements.


For some positions listed, a bachelor's degree or higher may be required. Use the Career and Program Explorer to see a full report for this career field. See links below chart for further guidance and/or connect with a Program Advisor to discuss career goals.

Some careers that a math major is especially good preparation for are the following:  actuarial science, computer analyst or programmer, economist, engineering analyst, information scientist, marketing research analyst, mathematician, meteorologist, numeral analyst, operations research, statistician, and systems analyst, mathematics teacher, mathematics professor, or professional mathematician. If you want to be a mathematics professor or a professional mathematician, you will need to go to graduate school in mathematics.

Suggested Course Sequence: Mathematics

A suggested course sequence for Mathematics majors follows.

  • All students should review the advising guide and consult an advisor.
  • Find out about related programs and course in the Fields of Study section.
  • Most courses have either assessment levels that must be met or prerequisites (courses that must be taken first). Part-time students and those who need to meet assessment levels or take prerequisite courses will take longer to complete a degree. An advisor will help make sure you are taking your courses in the right order.
  • All degree-seeking students must take a central group of General Education courses in English, mathematics, arts, behavioral and social sciences, humanities, and science. These courses are included in the suggested course sequence below.
