Career Opportunities

The Associate of Science Degree with Designation in Mathematics prepares students to transfer as a junior to a four-year institution in Colorado in order to pursue a bachelor’s degree in mathematics. Bachelor degree curriculums allow students to prepare for graduate school, teaching careers, or employment in areas that require mathematics, such as actuarial science, computer science, engineering or statistics.

Program Description

The Associate of Science Degree with Designation in Mathematics is designed for students who want to transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue a bachelor’s degree in mathematics. Completion of the AS degree completes the first two years of a mathematics bachelor’s degree, and guarantees transfer at junior standing with no more than 60 remaining credits to meet the graduation requirements for a bachelor’s degree in mathematics.

Program Requirements

In addition to the requirements listed below, you must:

  1. Earn a minimum of 60 semester hours of course work
  2. Earn a minimum of 15 graded semester hours at PCC
  3. Earn a minimum of “C” in all coursework for the degree

Consult with a PCC Arts and Sciences advisor or transfer advisor to find out which Colorado Statewide Guaranteed Transfer Courses (GT Pathways) or elective courses meet the degree requirements of the four-year college to which you plan to transfer.

To earn an AS Degree with Designation in Mathematics, you must complete at least 60 college-level credits, as described below:
