Math is a universal language that also helps solve problems in other disciplines.

Our Mathematics program provides you with a highly versatile degree with applications in a number of fields. You’ll be taught by experienced faculty members who are dedicated to your success — who take students at any mathematical level and help them move to a deeper and wider understanding of the discipline. By the time you finish your degree, you’ll be ready to transfer to a four-year college or university.

Transfer Degrees

The Mathematics department is proud to offer the Associate of Arts (A.A.) in Mathematics. As an additional transfer option, AACC has the unique Transfer Studies degree. Both degrees will prepare you to transfer to a four-year institution. Whichever path you choose, we strongly encourage you to meet with an advisor to structure your AACC studies to meet your specific transfer goals.

Mathematics, A.S.

Prepare for transfer to a four-year institution majoring in mathematics or other subjects requiring a strong math background. Develop analytic skills, computer-based problem solving ability and mathematical reasoning to further the scientific method. With continued study after transfer, the degree can lead to a career in actuarial science, computer science, cryptology, econometrics, engineering, mathematics, mathematics education, the physical sciences, statistics and more.


Transfer Studies, A.A.

The Transfer Studies, A.A. allows you to explore different subjects or concentrate on a specific course plan that will best meet your in-state (and even some out-of-state) transfer goals. This option is particularly good if you are undecided in your ultimate career direction, not sure where you'd like to eventually transfer or just looking to complete general education requirements while "testing the waters" of a particular major. No matter what brings you to Transfer Studies, the result is a well-rounded associate degree preparing you for further studies and successful career.

What can you do with a degree in Mathematics?

Mathematics is critical to a number of fields. Our graduates ultimately pursue rewarding careers in:

  • Computer science
  • Engineering
  • Statistics
  • Applied mathematics
  • Actuarial science
  • Economics
  • Computational chemistry

Some even work at places such as NOAA, NSA and NASA after they finish their bachelor’s degrees. And with four-year transfer agreements with dozens of colleges and universities in Maryland and beyond, a degree from AACC has never been a better investment.
