The Math Department offers the Liberal Arts (A.S.) degree in Math & Science. The Liberal Arts field is a general education degree that requires a student to take a sampling of courses in each of the various liberal arts disciplines- humanities, social sciences, mathematics, and science. The Math & Science major will take additional courses in the mathematics area (math, statistics, etc.) and sciences area (biology, chemistry, environmental science, physics, etc.). Upon transfer to a senior level college for the junior year of study, the student is prepared to take upper-level courses in math or science. Students in liberal arts often go on to graduate school for even more specialized training or go into the fields of law and medicine.
