Gain Critical Knowledge and Analytical Expertise with an Associate Degree in Mathematics

Have you ever thought about measuring the spread of forest fires or oil spills? Do you think about ways to optimize systems or how to measure instantaneous rates of change? By studying mathematics and its applications, you can prepare to do this and much more! Equip yourself with the tools you need to pursue a position in insurance, operations research, finance, or engineering. A great way to get started on the right track is to pursue an associate degree in the field of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).

Our Associate of Science in STEM Mathematics degree presents basic concepts and methods in modern mathematics to develop your ability to think critically and apply advanced concepts to various disciplines. A degree in mathematics helps show employers that you have the commitment, intelligence, and problem-solving skills necessary for a wide variety of career paths.

With the flexibility that our AS in STEM Mathematics offers, you can prepare for a dynamic future. Research opportunities are encouraged, and professors are willing to sit down with you and discuss research ideas or even help walk through math problems with you. What separates Liberty from the other schools is the way our professors truly believe in our mission of Training Champions for Christ.

Our AS in STEM Mathematics is designed to help you later pursue your BS in Mathematics or math and applied statistics degree. If you are more geared towards engineering or another discipline, you could potentially transfer your credits into another degree as well! Whichever path you choose, you can be confident that you are receiving a world-class STEM education.

Why Choose Liberty’s Associate Degree in STEM Mathematics?

If you choose to pursue your associate degree in STEM with a focus in mathematics, you will receive advanced mathematical training that many people have never experienced. Our STEM courses cover how to analyze and synthesize God’s design of the world and its reflection in mathematical and formulaic laws. Your mathematics, engineering, and science professors have advanced degrees in their fields, are open to mentoring you and praying for you, and want to help you succeed.

Starting your academic journey with an associate degree is a great way to find your professional passions. While you complete mathematics courses, you will also take general education courses. This can help you decide which career field you want to pursue before committing to a more specialized bachelor’s degree.

Best of all, the credit hours you complete in this associate degree can potentially be used towards a bachelor’s degree with us! No matter the direction that God leads you, you can be confident in the education that you’re receiving. Our professors have years of experience in mathematics-related fields, so you can know that you are receiving a world-class education.

What Will You Learn in Our Associate Degree in STEM Mathematics?

Our associate degree in mathematics can help equip you with the mathematical and computing training needed to be more competitive in today’s digitally advanced world. Throughout this degree, you can learn how to solve problems using appropriate mathematical, technological, and scientific methods.

Our mathematics degree is designed so that you can have an understanding of calculus I and II, with options to take classes like differential equations, linear algebra, or multivariable calculus.

The following are some of the specific topics you will explore in this degree:

  • Computer ethics and algorithm design
  • Differentiation of functions, series, limits, and advanced methods of integration
  • Integration of polar coordinates, parameterization, and slope fields of differential equations
  • Probability density functions
  • Proof techniques and Boolean algebra

By majoring in STEM, you can feel confident in knowing that your degree program can help prepare you for a variety of STEM fields. If you hope to become an engineer, you may want to complete courses in linear algebra and differential equations. If you want to pursue a bachelor’s in math, you can take abstract algebra.
