  • Career Information
    Career paths involving mathematics are extensive, and include finance, engineering, computer science, cryptography, accounting, statistics, and operations research. The Associate of Science (AS) Degree with Designation in Mathematics prepares students to transfer as a junior to a four-year institution in Colorado in order to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in mathematics (BA or BS).

    What Will I Learn
    The most practical mathematics, such as basic counting and measurement, have been human activities since the earliest recorded times. Since then, mathematics has developed into a more systematic study of shapes and motion. Today, mathematicians seek out patterns and use them to formulate new theories, and mathematical reasoning helps to design models that can make predictions about nature. The mathematics courses at PCC give students the key knowledge and technological understanding necessary to succeed in those classes and programs that feature mathematics as a prerequisite.
