CT State Community College Catalog 2023-2024

  • New students enrolling for the first time in Fall 2023 will begin as students of Connecticut State Community College under this catalog. 
  • Continuing students from one of the 12 community colleges will be transitioned into a CT State program in this catalog as of the start of the Fall 2023 term.
  • The policies, courses and programs described are applicable as of the Fall 2023 term and may be updated as circumstances require.

The Mathematics Studies program fosters mathematical understanding, with applications to real-life scenarios, of branches of study including geometry, algebra, and calculus. The goal of the program is to provide a background in mathematics that will prepare students for the rigors of a four-year math degree. After completion, students will transfer seamlessly into a Bachelor of Mathematics Studies with a junior level status in the receiving CSCU (Connecticut State Colleges & Universities) institution as part of the CSCU transfer ticket program.

Learning Outcomes:

Students completing the CSCU Mathematics Studies Pathway and earning an Associate Degree will be able to:

  • Read, interpret, and effectively communicate mathematics both verbally and in writing.
  • Use appropriate technology to promote understanding and solve mathematical problems.
  • Acquire and demonstrate substantial knowledge from Algebra and Calculus.
  • Analyze, model, and solve real world problems, using various areas of mathematics.
  • Think analytically and critically and be able to formulate problems, solve them, and interpret their solutions.
  • Demonstrate the ability to use and understand multiple representations (including graphical, numerical and analytical) of mathematical concepts.

Students who earn an Associate of Arts degree in Mathematics Studies from the Connecticut State Community College can transfer their degree to either the Central Connecticut State University (CCSU), Eastern Connecticut State University (ECSU), Southern Connecticut State University (SCSU), Western Connecticut State University (WCSU), or Charter Oak State College (COSC).
