Associate of Science Degree

The Associate of Science degree in mathematics provides students with the general education and mathematics courses normally taken in the first two years of a mathematics program at a four­year college or university and provides the flexibility for students desiring only an associate degree to specialize the program to individual interests. To receive an Associate of Science degree in Mathematics, the student must (a) make a minimum grade of C in all required mathematics and science courses, and (b) have an overall GPA of 2.0 or greater (c) take 6 hours of mathematics at ACC from Calculus III or higher.

  +Prerequisites: See Course Descriptions
  1Any other US History I course in the Core Curriculum may be substituted for HIST 1301.
  2Students should consult with a full time mathematics instructor to determine if it is necessary to take one or more mathematics courses (like MATD 0390 or MATH 1314, MATH 1316, or MATH 2412) before taking calculus.
  3Select from the appropriate section of the Core Curriculum Course List. The science courses should include at least two in one discipline. At least 8 hours of science must be included, which may be two or three courses, depending on the discipline. Students planning to major in mathematics at a four year college or university should take 8 hours of engineering physics. Also, most four-year degree plans in mathematics require some foreign language course which students are encouraged to take in the first two years.
  4Math restricted electives: MATH 2318, MATH 2405, MATH 2420, MATH 2454.
  5The degree plan requires a minimum of 60 credits. The one credit free elective hour may be fulfilled through the choice of a 4-credit course where the degree plan only has 3 credits listed.
  6Select a Speech course from Communications in the Core Curriculum Course List.
  7Restricted electives must be chosen from among the following courses: COSC 1336, COSC 1337, MATH 1342, MATH 2318, MATH 2405, MATH 2420, MATH 2454, PHYS 2425, or PHYS 2426.
