Mathematics - Associate in Science-TransferDetails for Associate in Science-Transfer - Mathematics
The role of mathematics is vital and growing, providing solutions to problems in a wide range of sciences: social, biological, physical, behavioral and management. As a whole, mathematics is necessary for understanding and expressing ideas in science, engineering and human affairs. Mathematics is integrally related to computer science and statistics, which have proven invaluable to advancing research and modern industrial technology. The curriculum for the Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer academically prepares the student to transfer into the CSU system to complete a baccalaureate degree in a similar major. The Mathematics major consists of courses appropriate for an Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer degree, which provides a foundational understanding of the discipline, a breadth of coursework in the discipline, and preparation for transfer to any CSU that accepts the Transfer Model Curriculum (TMC). The Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer is intended for students who plan to complete a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics at a CSU campus. Students completing this degree are guaranteed admission to the CSU system, but not to a particular campus or major. Students transferring to a CSU campus that does accept this degree will be required to complete no more than 60 (semester) units after transfer to earn a bachelor’s degree. This degree may not be the best option for students intending to transfer to a particular CSU campus or to a university or college that is not part of the CSU system. In all cases, students should consult with a counselor for more information on university admission and transfer requirements.

A transfer map is a suggested schedule of courses to take each quarter, if you are planning to transfer and pursue a bachelorâ€™s degree in a particular subject. These maps were created to help you get a solid footing in the subject and stay on track with courses commonly required by CSU or UC schools, but they do not guarantee your admission to any university. Itâ€™s important that you work with a counselor or academic adviser to determine exactly which classes you need to reach your particular goal.
