# Mathematics

Mathematics is the study of quantity (Arithmetic), structure (Algebra), space (Geometry/Trigonometry), and change (Calculus). The department offers transfer level math courses for both liberal arts and B-STEM Majors. MATH 010 (Structures and Concepts I) and MATH 021 (Introduction to Statistics) are the appropriate entry-level transfer courses for liberal arts majors. B-STEM (Business, Science, Technology, or Math) students will begin their course of study at either MATH 035 (College Algebra), MATH 070 (Pre-Calculus), or MATH 065 (Calculus I) depending on their high school preparations.

The most common career opportunities with a baccalaureate degree in mathematics include 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.
