Stark State College’s associate of science in mathematics is a two-year degree that lays a solid foundation of skills for careers that require mathematical, analytical and problem solving abilities; careers from Wall Street to Hollywood, from industry to government. An associate degree in mathematics equips students with skills in demand by today’s employers. A CNN survey in 2009 noted “the 15 top-paying careers in the US all have one common factor: a strong background in mathematics.”

Math is vital to just about everything we do. It is an essential part of our lives on a daily basis and can open a world of opportunities in many majors.

And, if your career choice requires further education, an associate of science in mathematics can transfer easily to a four-year institution for a bachelor’s and lead to a master’s degree in mathematics.
