The Mathematics Associate in Science Degree program offers training in both pure and applied mathematics, leading to careers in research, education, business, industry, and government, including such professions as educators, statisticians, actuaries, and operations research analysts. Many areas, such as the physical and social sciences, engineering, economics, and business, are dependent upon the use of applied mathematics in developing solutions to practical problems.
Students who complete Mathematics courses will demonstrate critical thinking skills, analyze abstract concepts, and transition from the concrete to the abstract in mathematical thinking. The Associate in Science Degree in Mathematics for Transfer (AS-T) is intended for students who plan to transfer and complete a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics, or a similar major at a CSU campus. Each CSU campus determines which of the degrees it offers are “similar” and can be completed with the preparation included in the AS-T in Mathematics within 60 units once a student transfers, so which majors are “similar” varies from CSU to CSU. For a current list of what majors (and what options or areas of emphasis within that major) have been designed as “similar” to this degree at each CSU campus, please visit the CSU's Associate Degree for Transfer Major and Campus Search webpage and seek guidance from a Moorpark College counselor. Students completing the AS-T degree in Mathematics are guaranteed admission to the CSU system, but not necessarily to a particular CSU campus or major.
To earn an AS-T in Mathematics, students must:
- Complete a minimum of 60 CSU-transferable semester units including both of the following:
- Certified completion of the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) or the California State University General Education-Breadth (CSU GE-Breadth) requirements.
NOTE: To comply with SB 1440 and to not exceed the maximum units allowed, the IGETC is the recommended GE pattern to be used for this transfer degree.
b. Complete the courses in the Mathematics major as listed in the Moorpark College catalog.
2. Obtain a minimum grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.0 in all CSU-transferable coursework. While a minimum of 2.0 is required for admission, some transfer institutions and majors may require a higher GPA. Please consult with a counselor for more information.
3. Obtain a grade of “C” or better or “P” in all courses required in the major. Even though a “pass-no-pass” is allowed (Title 5 §55063), it is highly recommended that students complete their major courses with a letter grade (A, B, or C).
4. Complete requirements in residence. For students in the Ventura County Community College District, a minimum of 12 units must be completed in residency at the college granting the degree.
Students transferring to a CSU campus that accepts the AS-T in Mathematics will be required to complete no more than 60 units after transfer to earn a bachelor’s degree (unless the major is a designated “high-unit” major at a particular campus). This degree may not be the best option for students intending to transfer to a particular CSU campus or to a university or college that is not part of the CSU system. Students should consult with a counselor to obtain more information on university admission and transfer requirements.
