By successfully completing an associate in science degree with an emphasis in mathematics you will have the ability to:
Mathematicians use mathematical theory, computational techniques, algorithms and the latest computer technology to solve economic, scientific, engineering, physics and business problems. Occupations that require extensive knowledge of mathematics or, in some cases, a degree in mathematics include actuaries, statisticians, computer programmers, computer systems analysts, computer scientists, database administrators, computer software engineers and operations research analysts. A strong background in mathematics also facilitates employment as teachers (e.g., elementary, secondary, postsecondary), engineers, economists, market and survey researchers, financial analysts, personal financial advisors, physicists and astronomers. Some jobs require advanced degrees in mathematics or a related discipline. A double major in mathematics and another related discipline is particularly desirable to many employers.
