Mathematics, A.S.

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

Mathematics courses are designed to meet the needs of students in all departments of the college: students who plan to teach mathematics; those specializing in such fields as chemistry, physics, and engineering who need a foundation in mathematics; and students who pursue other academic careers and want practice in the art of logical, clear, and accurate thinking.

An Associate of Science in Mathematics degree emphasizes the traditional core of mathematics at the freshman and sophomore level. The program provides basic education in mathematics with sufficient flexibility to allow students to transfer to a variety of four-year schools offering bachelor of science degrees in mathematics. Students must successfully complete core courses with a “C-” or better to meet program requirements. Students who are planning to transfer to a four-year program may need to have additional hours beyond the program requirements at Northwest College in order to transfer in as a junior. These students should consult with their advisor and the appropriate four-year college catalog.
