# Mathematics

Mathematics is the study of quantity (Arithmetic), structure (Algebra), space (Geometry/Trigonometry), and change(Calculus). The department offers courses that range from pre-collegiate through transfer mathematics.

The most common career opportunities with a baccalaureate degree in mathematics includes: technical and financial industries, academics and research, computer and statistical fields (many career options require an advanced degree).

Transfer requirements in Mathematics are available in the Counseling Department. In all cases, students should consult with a counselor for specific transfer requirements.
