Degree: Associate of Science
Major: University Parallel
Area of Emphasis: Mathematics

For more information, contact the Math and Science division at 615-230-3261 or at mathscience@volstate.edu.

This pathway is for students planning to continue their education to earn a bachelor’s degree in mathematics or a closely related field such as Actuarial Science or Statistical Analysis. Mathematics majors take a core collection of classes in calculus, mathematical reasoning, linear algebra, computer programming, probability, statistics, and mathematical modeling. These courses introduce students to a solid foundation of mathematics and provide content knowledge, problem-solving skills, and logical reasoning skills.

Transfer Options
Tennessee Transfer Pathways (TTPs) are advising tools designed to help community college students plan for transferring to a Tennessee public university or select regionally accredited, non-profit Tennessee private colleges and universities to complete their baccalaureate degree. The TTPs also constitute an agreement between community colleges and four-year colleges/universities confirming that community college courses meet major preparation requirements. For transfer to other four-year institutions, contact an advisor at the senior institution.  Note: Due to the transferability to a four-year institution, there are to be no course substitutions where a specific course is required in the TTP curriculum guide.  

All students graduating with a degree from VSCC are required to take the E-Proficiency Profile (EPP) to meet graduation requirements. More information can be found at https://www.volstate.edu/graduation/exit-exams.

Students who wish to pursue a concentration in actuarial science available at UTK, UTC, MTSU or TSU should complete ECON 2100 and ECON 2200 to fulfill the requirement in social/behavioral sciences.

Students transferring  to UTK must complete a non-U.S. History Sequence

TSU requires PHYS 2110/2120 Calculus-based Physics sequence; Industrial track of the Professional Mathematics Concentration at MTSU requires PHYS2110/2120 Calculus-based Physics sequence; UOM requires either PHYS 22210/2120 Calculus-based Physics sequence or CHEM 1110/1120 sequence.  TTU requires a two-semester computer science lab sequence but not including PHYS 2010/2020 as an option.

Students transferring to UoM must earn at least a C in this course.

Recommended Schedule

This is a recommended schedule. Learning Support, pre-requisites and other academic factors may impact this schedule.  See your advisor to create a degree plan.

DegreeWorks, along with the correct catalog, should be utilized by students for all of their educational planning.  Students can monitor their progress toward a degree or certificate and view missing requirements with the DegreeWorks audit, which is accessible through My Volstate.
