Introduction to the Mathematics Associate in Arts (AA) - University Transfer Program

The mission of the mathematics program is to develop and maintain an active community of students and faculty whose common pursuit is the learning and teaching of mathematics in a junior college environment. This community encourages the view and use of mathematics both as a universal logical language and as a mode of inquiry. The mathematical mode of inquiry requires studying assumptions critically, reasoning logically, evaluating objectively, and arriving at sound conclusions. The goal of the A.A. degree program is to provide each graduate with the foundation needed to pursue a professional career in mathematics through advanced study or employment.

Students should consult with an advisor at the college or university they plan to attend for the specific courses recommended by that institution. We strongly encourage you to contact the Pensacola State College Mathematics Department for assistance in planning your program of study.
