Careers for Math Majors
What are cryptography, biomathematics, finance, operations research and actuarial science?
The answer: just a few of the many careers for math and computer science majors, according to the Mathematical Association of America.
A recent survey reported by Forbes.com states that the top 15 highest-earning college degrees have a common element: mathematics.
You will succeed in math! We will help.
An assessment test will show you where to start. Once enrolled in class, our dedicated Math department faculty and student tutors provide quality instruction and unlimited free drop-in tutoring. If you fear math, take Tutored Math (MAT108), a 2-credit class that provides extra tutoring help in your other math classes.
Placement tests may indicate a need for mathematical concepts and basic college algebra. With that solid foundation, move through algebra, trigonometry, finite math, calculus, geometry, differential equations and discreet mathematical structures.
Math department courses are offered in a traditional classroom setting, or with an online component. Some students prefer web-based homework assignments, while others prefer hybrid (blended) classes or classes entirely online.
See MAT course offerings below.
Computer Science Courses Transfer to ASU
Start your 4-year degree here, and then transfer to one of our partnered universities. Talk to an academic advisor in the Math & Computer Science department about your goals, and we will help you choose the programs and classes that are best for you. At GCC, you can complete all courses required for the first two years of ASU's Applied Computing Program.
Register in the Computer Science MAPP (Maricopa-ASU Partnership Program) to receive added college benefits.
See the GCC Course Sequence for Computer Science majors or for Systems Engineering majors for a schedule outline of all required courses. Most of these courses also transfer to the Computer Science programs at U of A and NAU.
Learn C++, Java, and More
GCC's Computer Science offers courses for industry professionals including beginning and advanced C++ and Java.
Free Microsoft Software for Computer Science students
As partners in the Microsoft Academic Alliance Agreement, we can occasionally offer Computer Science students free Microsoft software. See your instructor for information.
