The Mathematics track in the Liberal Arts and Sciences (A.S.) degree program is a rigorous two-year university-parallel program recommended for those who plan to transfer to a four-year school with a major in mathematics or a field requiring a strong math background, leading to career possibilities in science, engineering, business, industry, education, or actuarial science.
The student entering this program should be well grounded in mathematics at the high school level. An entering student should have four years of Regents-level mathematics including Precalculus. A student with less preparation will require more time to complete the program.
Graduation Requirements (60-62 Credits)
Graduates of the Liberal Arts and Sciences: Mathematics, A.S. program will be able to:
- Use algebra, including linear algebra, and calculus to solve problems.
- Know the characteristics of various types of functions and their graphs.
- Use graphical, analytical, and numerical methods to explore mathematics and to analyze and solve problems.
- Use critical thinking skills and logical reasoning to decide which procedures and methods are needed to solve various problems in the areas of mathematics, science, and computer science.
- Transfer to a mathematics program or math-related program at a four-year college.
Graduates will be able to transfer to a four-year institution to earn a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics. Students who have identified the four-year college to which they plan to transfer should plan their program at SUNY Sullivan accordingly with their academic advisor.
