Liberal Arts and Sciences: Mathematics (A.S.)

HEGIS: 5649

SUNY CODE: 0221

The Mathematics program is designed to provide students with a solid foundation in order to transfer to a four-year institution for a degree in mathematics or a mathematics related field.

The goals of this program are to:

  • prepare students to solve mathematical problems using mathematical techniques and technology;
  • provide students with a solid foundation in algebra, calculus, and statistics; and
  • prepare students to effectively communicate the solutions to mathematical problems.

Successful graduates from this program will be able to:

  • manipulate and analyze data to solve mathematical problems;
  • demonstrate analytical abilities in organizing, data gathering, synthesizing, and evaluating; and
  • demonstrate solutions to mathematical problems in written form, oral form, and using proofs.

Career Opportunities/Transfer Information

Upon completion of a four-year degree, graduates find employment in industrial or governmental laboratories, or companies that use statistical analysis, actuarial work, or electronic computing.  Others move into education and teach mathematics.  Many of our graduates will go on to four-year schools such as Clarkson, Syracuse, SUC at Oswego, SUNY Institute of Technology at Utica/Rome, and Utica College.
