Math

Five Reasons to Study Math:

There's a reason why math is a core subject in Education. However, here are some sound reasons you might want to consider math as a major:

  1. Mathematics influences almost everything we use and create, from computers to architecture
  2. Math combines well with a variety of other subjects from art and music to literature and science
  3. Graduate prospects are high as there are always requirements for employees with mathematical skills and knowledge.
  4. A mathematical skill-set is transferable to a wide range of careers that are not necessarily math related
  5. Salary scales for math majors are not to be underestimated.

Math at CCC

At Clovis Community College we offer an Associate in Science Degree in mathematics and an Associate Degree for Transfer. Our professors are of the highest caliber and are dedicated to helping students succeed.

Program Learning Outcomes:

  1. Communicate mathematics with understanding (read,write, listen, speak).
  2. Use critical thinking and mathematical reasoning to solve a variety of problems.
  3. Apply mathematical models to real world situations.
  4. Use technology, when appropriate, to enhance their mathematical understanding, critical thinking, and problem solving skills.
  5. Demonstrate the ability to use symbolic, graphical, numerical, and written representations of mathematical ideas.

ASSOCIATE IN SCIENCE IN MATHEMATICS FOR TRANSFER DEGREE (MAJOR #C.6200.AS-T)

The Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer Degree prepares students for transfer into four-year mathematics programs. A strong mathematics background allows students to pursue studies in fields such as mathematics education, engineering, information technology, statistical analysis, physical science, and advanced mathematics.

The program is suited to the needs of students who will complete their education at Clovis Community College with an A.S. degree, as well as those students who will complete their Clovis Community College Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer Degree who transfer to a four year institution to complete their bachelor’s degree. Successful completion of the Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer Degree guarantees the student acceptance to a California State University (but does not guarantee acceptance to a particular campus or major) to pursue a baccalaureate degree, in preparation to pursue a career in the field of mathematics, engineering, statistics, actuarial science, business and management, law enforcement, government, and education.

To obtain the Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer Degree, students must complete the following requirements:

  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:
    1. The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) or the California State University General Education – Breadth requirements.
    2. 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 (ADTs) also require that students must earn a “C” grade or better in all courses required for the major or area of emphasis.
