Mathematician might be the first job that comes to mind when considering what to do with a math degree. But math is used in many jobs, from computer scientist to physicist to engineer. Although careers in most math-heavy fields require applicants to hold at least a bachelor’s degree, a student with only an associate degree in math still has options. Oftentimes, positions for those who hold associate degrees in math work as stepping-stones to higher-paying careers.
Mathematics is a program designed primarily for students planning on continuing their education to earn a baccalaureate or bachelor’s degree in subjects such as computer science, statistics, chemistry, advanced mathematics, or engineering.
