Mathematics – Associate in Science Degree for Transfer to CSU

Top Code: 1701.00

The Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer (AS-T) prepares a student for transfer into the CSU system for further study in pure or applied mathematics. Earning a 4-year degree in mathematics prepares students for careers in which mathematical skills are in great demand, such as science, technology, engineering, computer science, business, industry, medicine, education or government.

The goal of this degree is to provide a clear pathway for transfer students applying to the California State University (CSU). Completion of the Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer (AS-T) ensures transfer students will complete the lower division general education requirements as well as the articulated lower division major requirements for the bachelor’s degree in Mathematics prior to transferring. The Associate in Science Degree in Mathematics for Transfer degree will be awarded upon completion of coursework totaling 60 California State University (CSU) transferable units including the major requirements and the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC-CSU) or California State University General Education (CSUGE) requirements with a minimum grade point average of 2.0. All courses in the major must be completed with a grade of “C” or better, or P if the course is graded on a P/NP basis.

Program Outcomes

  1. Develop critical thinking and problem solving skills.
  2. Increase the ability to read, write, and discuss mathematics.
  3. Develop an understanding of the usefulness of mathematics to other disciplines and life.
