Program Details

Raritan Valley Community College (RVCC) offers an Associate of Science in Mathematics. This program prepares students to transfer into their junior year of a four year program in mathematics or mathematical education. Students can also choose to pursue degrees within a related area such as mathematical finance, actuarial science, computational biology, and statistics. The program is also recommended for students interested in pursuing higher studies in physics and other scientific fields. Mathematics is a very versatile subject that can be applied to almost any career. Those with a degree in mathematics have the ability to think analytically, solve problems and communicate precisely.

Although this degree is offered online, a few of the required courses may be only offered onsite at the college. However, RVCC assures that at least 85 percent of the courses are offered online. During the program, students utilize concepts of mathematical modeling and employ logical reasoning in mathematical proof and problem-solving. Students learn to synthesize mathematical concepts, theories and applications so as to solve mathematical problems independently. Students also develop an understanding for the appropriate use of technology for problem solving in such areas as calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, and discrete math. Those who study mathematics can go on to become a teacher or professor, a mathematician, a statistician, an actuary, a financial analyst, a software designer and developer, a scientist and many other things.
