Associate of Arts in University Studies in Math and Science for Transfer (AAT)

Division: Student Services

This degree prepares students for transfer to a four-year university. Students completing this degree will have an introductory foundation in mathematics and science. Students will gain an understanding of basic mathematical concepts, quantitative reasoning and their application, experimental methodology, hypotheses testing, and the power of systematic questioning. Students will also develop a comprehension of the basic concepts of physical and biological sciences, and a sophisticated understanding of science as a human endeavor, including the limitations, as well as the power of scientific inquiry.

Program Outcomes

  • Apply the principles of mathematics to the process of scientific investigation.
  • Explain and apply quantitative reasoning.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of science and mathematical concepts relevant to inquiry at the university level.

Transfer & Career Opportunities

The College maintains articulation with most CSU and UC campuses and some private colleges and universities. Course requirements vary between colleges and universities and students are encouraged to consult and a COS counselor for program planning and course selection. This degree prepares students for baccalaureate majors including, but not limited to: Atmospheric Science, Biotechnology, Computer Science, Engineering, Enology, Food and Nutritional Sciences, Genetics, Health Science, Hydrology, Kinesiology, Natural Science, Pre-Nursing (B.S.N.), Physics, and many pre-professional majors: Pre-Med, Pre-Dental, Pre-Pharmacy, Pre-Optometry, Pre-Veterinary Med, and Pre-Chiropractic.
