If you love mathematics and are curious about where a strong background in math can take you, check out our Mathematics associate degree program. 

After graduating, our students often transfer to four-year institutions to major in such fields as computer and information science, engineering, statistics, actuarial science, business, economics and mathematics. Thanks to Montco's compliance with the Pennsylvania Department of Education's Transfer Agreement Oversight Committee (TAOC), you can easily transfer to schools in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE).

Program outcomes
  • Differentiate algebraic and trigonometric functions;
  • Integrate exponential, logarithmic, inverse trigonometric and hyperbolic functions;
  • Differentiate vector valued functions;
  • Use mathematical modeling;
  • Find a matrix P that will orthogonally diagonalize a symmetric matrix A (MAT-220); or 
  • solve a nonhomogeneous linear differential equation by the method of variation of parameters.
