Bachelor's degree programs in Mathematics prepare students with diverse career goals by developing rigorous, logical thinking; an appreciation and familiarity with complex structures and algorithms; and the ability to learn technical material and abstract concepts. Community and junior college students seeking a bachelor's degree in Mathematics are strongly encouraged to complete an Associate in Arts (A.A.) or Associate in Science (A.S.) degree prior to transfer. A minimum of 60 semester credits is required for transfer as a junior into a baccalaureate Mathematics program. Since admission is competitive, completing the courses recommended below does not by itself guarantee admission.
A grade of C or better may be required for chemistry, mathematics, and engineering science courses to transfer.
Be sure to consult the institution you plan on transferring to for course articulations.
