In today’s highly technological society, the study of mathematics has become increasingly important, particularly to computer science. Mathematics is a study that provides a foundation for problem solving and logical reasoning skills. It includes arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, statistics, and computer programming, etc. Mathematics is the science of numbers and their operations, interrelations, combinations, generalizations, and abstractions. In addition to college-level mathematics courses (numbered 100 or above) that will meet the lower-division needs of college transfer students, Southwestern College offers developmental courses consisting of arithmetic through intermediate algebra.
Below is a sample of the career options available for the mathematics major. A few of these require an associate degree, most require a bachelor’s degree, and some require a graduate-level degree: numerical analyst, teacher, engineering analyst, systems analyst, operations analyst, casualty rater, technical writer, research assistant, statistician, and computer specialist. In addition, there is presently a great need for high school and college mathematics instructors with this area of employment continuing to grow as society becomes more technological in business, industry, government, and education.
