Mathematics, Associate of Science

A Foundation in Math Opens Many Doors

Mathematics is fundamental to many fields of study and professions – everything from auto repair to astrophysics uses mathematics. Whether you are planning a career in engineering, one of the sciences, information technology, business, finance, medicine, industry, or education, a strong mathematics foundation can be your ladder to success.

At San Jacinto College, we have small classes taught by experienced professors who are dedicated to our students' mastery of mathematics. Upon graduation, you will be ready for entry into a wide variety of four-year degree mathematics programs or for immediate entry into one of many technical fields.

The Associate of Science (AS) degree is designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year or upper-level college or university and major in mathematics, one of the sciences (biology, chemistry, geology, physics, biotechnology, or related field), engineering, or computer science. For more information, students may refer to the Core Curriculum and Field of Study sections of the catalog. The AS degree differs from an Associate of Arts (AA) degree in the amount or level of mathematics and science required for degree completion. The College requires a minimum of 12 hours of mathematics, 12 hours in science, or 12 hours in computer sciences beyond the Core requirement for the degree. Please note the Field of Study AS degree options contain state-required courses recommended for the degree.

Students seeking an AS degree should take science courses designed for majors rather than courses for non-majors. Science courses designed for allied health students are not intended for academic transfer toward a science major.

Students choosing to pursue an AS degree should select from the following areas of study: Natural Science, Computer Science, Engineering, or Mathematics. Courses designed for non-majors do not apply to an AS degree:

  • BIOL 1308 Biology for Non-Science Majors I (lecture)/BIOL 1108 Biology for Non-Science Majors I (lab);
  • BIOL 1309 Biology for Non-Science Majors II (lecture)/BIOL 1109 Biology for Non-Science Majors II (lab);
  • CHEM 1305 Introductory Chemistry I (lecture)/CHEM 1105 Introductory Chemistry I (lab); and
  • GEOL 1301 Earth Sciences for Non-Science Majors I (lecture)/GEOL 1101 Earth Sciences for Non-Science Majors I (lab).

The College recommends these courses for the AA degrees.

If a student successfully completes San Jacinto College’s 42-hour Core Curriculum, that block of courses must be substituted for the receiving institution’s Core Curriculum. The receiving institution may not require a student to take additional Core Curriculum courses to meet the requirements of the Core. Students who transfer without completing the Core Curriculum shall receive academic credit in the Core Curriculum of the receiving institution for each of the courses the student has successfully completed in the San Jacinto College Core Curriculum. Students should plan Core Curriculum courses that would meet baccalaureate degree requirements at the four-year institution.

If you do not see your transfer school, please follow the Plan of Study. For more information, contact an Admissions Advisor. Please speak to an advisor at San Jacinto College and the transfer institution to ensure this Transfer Plan is accurate and complete.
