Introduction

The Mathematics Department at Santa Barbara City College offers a broad curriculum to meet the needs of students with a wide variety of goals. It offers a standard college-level sequence in single and multivariable calculus, analytic geometry, linear algebra and ordinary differential equations for freshman and sophomore students who plan to transfer to baccalaureate institutions. In addition, the department offers courses in statistics and calculus for Business, Biological Sciences and Social Science majors, as well as courses in support of Career Technical Education programs.

The Associate in Science for Transfer degree in Mathematics provides students with the foundational knowledge necessary to make a successful transition into a Baccalaureate Degree at any of the CSU campuses. The Associate Degree for Transfer (AA-T or AS-T) is a special degree offered at California Community Colleges. Students who earn an AA-T or AS-T degree are guaranteed admission to a campus within the California State University (CSU) system in a similar major, although not necessarily to a specific campus. Students who complete an AA-T or AS-T are given priority consideration when applying to a particular program that is similar to the student’s community college major and will be given a special GPA advantage when applying to CSU impacted campuses or majors. Students who are planning to pursue an AA-T or AS-T are strongly advised to meet with a counselor for additional information about this transfer program.

Each year, the list of careers demanding familiarity with basic mathematical skills grows. Animation, urban planning, geography, environmental science, architecture, business management, nursing, dentistry, forestry management, psychology and photography represent only a small sample from this list. Many careers require more sophisticated mathematical skills, such as physics, engineering, and computer science.

The Mathematics Department at Santa Barbara City College offers a broad curriculum to meet the needs of students with a wide variety of goals. The department offers the following sequences and courses to help our students achieve their career goals:

  1. A standard college-level sequence in single and multivariable calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations for students who plan to transfer to four-year colleges or universities in STEM fields.
  2. Transfer-level courses in statistics, mathematics for liberal arts majors, and college algebra.
  3. A two-course sequence in calculus for Business, Biological Sciences and Social Science majors.
  4. A complete precalculus program, including elementary algebra, intermediate algebra, college algebra and trigonometry to review old or gain new mathematical skills.

SBCC offers a Transfer Agreement Guarantee (TAG). A TAG is a contractual agreement between the student, SBCC, and specific four-year colleges or universities. This includes six University of California ( *UC) institutions, six California State Institutions (CSU), seven California private institutions, nine out-of-state institutions, as well as Honors Transfer Agreements with ten institutions and 8 CSUs without campus impaction. Students must enroll in the TAG program and work with a TAG advisor. Please click here to learn more on the TAG program website.
