Mathematics Associate in Science for Transfer (AS-T)

The Student Transfer Achievement Reform Act (Senate Bill 1440, now codified in California Education Code sections 66746-66749) guarantees admission to a California State University (CSU) campus for any community college student who completes an “associate degree for transfer”, a newly established variation of the associate degrees traditionally offered at a California community college. The Associate in Arts for Transfer (AA-T) or the Associate in Science for Transfer (AS-T) is intended for students who plan to complete a bachelor's degree in a similar major at a CSU campus. Students completing these degrees (AA-T or AS-T) are guaranteed admission to the CSU system, but not to a particular campus or major. In order to earn one of these degrees, students must complete:
1. Completion of 60 semester units or 90 quarter units that are eligible for transfer to the California State University, including both of the following:
a. The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) or the California State University General Education – Breadth Requirements.
b. A minimum of 18 semester units or 27 quarter units in a major or area of emphasis, as determined by the community college district.
2. Obtainment of a minimum grade point average of 2.0.
Associate Degrees for Transfer also require that students must earn a C or better in all courses required for the major or area of emphasis.
This degree may not be the best option for students intending to transfer to a particular CSU campus or to university or college that is not part of the CSU system. Students should consult with a counselor when planning to complete the degree for more information on university admission and transfer requirements. At the time of catalog publication, a student may earn an AS-T in Mathematics. Additional majors are being developed. Please see a counselor or visit http://www.canyons.edu for more information.
 
Student Learning Outcome
Students will be prepared for the mathematical reasoning required in upper division work in their major, including the ability to generalize concepts and comprehend increasing levels of abstraction.
Students will demonstrate mathematical literacy, problem solving ability, and modeling ability.
 
Recommended Pathway to Completion: Math-AS-T


Mathematics Associate in Science

The Mathematics program provides curriculum from basic arithmetic to algebra, statistics, linear algebra, calculus, and differential equations. These courses fulfill breadth requirements, associate degree requirements and transfer major requirements for degrees in mathematics, physics, chemistry and engineering. Many B.A./B.S. level careers require extensive background in mathematics. Virtually all two-year career programs in the business or technology fields require a solid foundation in mathematics. Examples of these career options include computer programmer, financial analyst, statistician, systems analyst, urban planner, and teacher.
