Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

Mathematics includes the study of algebra, probability, statistics, number theory, geometry, trigonometry, Calculus, Differential equations, analytic reasoning and problem solving skills. Guilford Technical Community College (GTCC) offers the first two years of mathematics courses and courses in other disciplines for students who want to major or minor in mathematics for a baccalaureate program.

The two-year program listed below is designed to meet the requirements of Associate of Science to be completed and prepare students for Bachelor of Science/Art in mathematics from regional public and private institutions. Students interested in transferring to four-year college or university after GTCC should consult with institution they be attending, their faculty, and/or GTCC Student Success Center to ensure transfer of the appropriate courses for that institution for both General Education or pre-major electives.

1 Recommendations given for transferring institution: UNC-G - HIS 111 or 131, NC A&T- HIS 111 or 112; Guilford College, HPU, or ASU - HIS 131; UNC-C or UNC-W - HIS 111.

2 Students can choose 8 hours of natural sciences from the following list: CHM151/152, BIO 111/112, PHY 151/152, PHY 251/252, AST 151/151A, BIO 110, GEL 111, or PHY 110/110A. Students transferring to NC A&T should take PHY 251/252 sequence.

3 Depending on where students are placed in mathematics sequence, these hours may be used for general education or pre-major elective to take additional mathematics.

4 Students should take MUS 110 for most institutions or MUS 112 if transferring to UNC-W.

5 For most institutions students may select from ECO 251, ECO 252, PSY 150, POL 120, or SOC 210. Students transferring to Guilford College should take ECO 251 and students transferring to UNC-W should take SOC 210.

6 For students transferring to UNC-C can also take CSC 134. For students transferring WSSU should take CSC 120. Some institutions do not require Computer Science course may take an UGETC elective.

7 For most institutions students should take PHI 240. Students transferring to UNC-W is recommended to take ENG 231. Students transferring to ASU should take ENG 241 or 242. Students transferring to UNC-G should take COM 231.

8 Students transferring to UNC-G should take a Foreign Language or additional UGETC course. Students transferring to UNC-W should take MAT 152.

9 Students who enter in mathematics sequence lower than MAT 172 may use this additional hours. Students transferring to UNC-C should take one of the following courses: HIS 112, GEO 111, GEO 112, POL 210, or POL 220. Students transferring to HPU should take REL 110, REL 211, REL 212, or REL 221. UGETC courses to consider is foreign language and/or Physical Education depending on your institution. Students transferring to NC A&T should take MAT 152.

10 Students transferring to UNC-W should take Foreign Language or Physical Education course. Students transferring to WSSU should take CSC 130.
