After earning a high school diploma, some students may continue their education to obtain an associate degree. Usually, this undergraduate program can be completed in less than three years. Students should have a good foundation in this field in order to work toward a higher degree or enter the workforce.

What is an associate degree in mathematics? This program of study concentrates on mathematical principles and applications. Courses may include a broad overview of higher math, focusing on statistics, geometry, algebraic functions, and other concepts. Students can gain confidence when solving equations and functions, determining probability, and working with integers and polynomials. These skills can prepare students to transfer to another undergraduate degree in this or related fields such as computer or actuarial science.

Valuable skills beyond mathematical computation can be gained by studying for this type of degree. Students may develop complex problem-solving and critical thinking skills, which are needed in many areas of business and industry.

Around the world, institutions of higher learning offer associate degree programs in mathematics. The costs associated with this degree can vary due to school and location. Students should speak with an admissions officer to determine the expenses of the school they want to attend.

Mathematical degrees are needed in many fields of work. Some students may be interested in a career in applied math, accounting or bookkeeping, computer science, or even teaching. Many positions are found with private companies or in a public setting such as government agencies or in education. With an associate degree, candidates may qualify for entry-level positions or transfer to a four-year program to continue gaining skills and experience.

Associate’s degrees are more convenient than ever for students who want to attend school part-time, full-time, or through online classes. If you are ready to begin working for a mathematics degree, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
