Is This Degree Right For Me? The Mathematics specialization is designed for persons who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university in a major that is math intensive. The Mathematics specialization includes the courses usually required in the first two years of a baccalaureate degree program in mathematics. Students can expect to take multiple sequences of laboratory sciences (like biology, chemistry or calculus- based physics) along with general courses such as English, history, communications and the orientation to college life as a STEM major, SDV 101 for STEM majors.
What Should I Consider When Selecting Courses

Students in the Mathematics specializations are urged to begin their programs of study during the fall semester because many courses are sequential and only offered once a year. Students should start their programs by taking MTH 263 - Calculus I as it is the pre-requisite for many of the lab science and advanced mathematics courses required for the program.

  • Create a schedule for all required courses, pay attention to prerequisites and when courses are offered, complete your first math and English courses in your first year
  • Connect with an advisor at your community college and J Sargeant Reynolds Community College within your first year via College Connect
Are there other program requirements beyond specific courses? The first mathematics course (gateway course) is MTH 263 - Calculus I and should be taken during the first semester (typically fall) upon entry to the college. Math majors should be prepared to complete a series of math application courses such as MTH 264 - Calculus II, MTH 265 - Calculus III, MTH 266 - Linear Algebra, and MTH 287 - Differential Equations.
Do More With Your Degree Completing a degree in mathematics provides opportunities in careers such as Remote Sensing and Processing, Modeling/Simulation and Mathematics Statistics, Mathematics Economics, Computational Modeling and Data Analysis, Actuarial Sciences, and Biomathematics.
Program Successes & Highlights Students may qualify for one of several internship opportunities offered by The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Institute of Health (NIH), the Department of Energy (DOE) or other private or government agencies. Our graduates have been successful in their studies at: Old Dominion University, Virginia Commonwealth University, William & Mary, Virginia Tech, and James Madison University

Did You Know That...
  • Completing your Associate transfer degree post-high school satisfies all lower division general education requirements and increases the chance of completing your bachelor's degree?
  • Exceeding 3 years or 90 credits at your community college means you may have exhausted your financial aid at that college and have limited your future financial aid at: J Sargeant Reynolds Community College
