Academic Program Code:  655

Mathematics forms a foundation for all scientific and technical disciplines. The Mathematics Pre-Major lays the foundation for those students who transfer to 4-year colleges and universities. It can serve as a starting point for students majoring in general mathematics, applied mathematics, and secondary education in mathematics.  By declaring this Pre-Major, students will be on track to graduate with an Associate of Arts degree from GRCC and transfer to a 4-year institution to complete a bachelor’s degree in mathematics. It is recommended that all students interested in mathematics as a major discuss career plans with a member of the Mathematics Department as soon as possible.
