The mathematics transfer program is designed to prepare students for transfer to a four- year institution where they can generally choose among several options. The pure mathematics option emphasizes mathematical analysis and is designed to prepare students for graduate study. A student who completes graduate study finds employment in research areas in government, education, and industry. The applied math option emphasizes applied mathematics and numerical techniques, statistics, and computer programming. Graduates find employment in business, industry, and government. The statistics option trains students to design and analyze studies, surveys, and experiments. They often find employment as statisticians with insurance companies, research and development departments, and government. The math education option prepares teachers at the secondary level.
The suggested course of study will prepare students for transfer to Montana State University – Bozeman, Montana Tech of The University of Montana, and The University of Montana – Missoula.
