The Associate in Science Degree in Mathematics for Transfer is designed to prepare the student for transfer to institutions of higher education and specifically intended to satisfy the lower division requirements for the Baccalaureate Degree in Mathematics at a California State University (but does not guarantee acceptance to a particular campus or major). It will also provide the student with a sufficient academic basis from which to pursue a career in mathematics, statistics, actuarial science, and education.
