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 the institution they will 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.

Upon successful completion of this degree, graduates will be able to:

  • Apply strategies to acquire new information (concepts and perspectives) in a variety of academic disciplines.
  • Analyze academic, workplace, and societal issues presented in a variety of academic disciplines using discipline-specific concepts and underlying perspectives.
  • Use critical thinking (reason and creativity in problem-solving and decision-making) in a variety of academic disciplines.
  • Demonstrate use of technology appropriate to a variety of academic disciplines.

5 For students transferring to UNCC can take CSC 134 . For students transferring to WSSU should take CSC 120 . For students transferring to UNCG should take CSC 151 . Some institutions do not require Computer Science courses.  Students should take MAT 280  unless transferring to UNCW, they should take MAT 152 .  Students transferring to UNC-Chapel Hill should take BIO 111  instead of MAT 280 .

6 For most institutions students should take PHI 240 . Students transferring to UNCW is recommended to take ENG 231 . Students transferring to ASU should take ENG 241  or ENG 242 . Students transferring to UNCG should take COM 231 .

7 Students who enter in mathematics sequence lower than MAT 172  may use this additional hours. Students transferring to UNCC should take one of the following courses: HIS 112 , GEO 111 , GEO 112 , POL 210 , or POL 220 , MAT 280  and BIO 111 . Students transferring to HPU should take REL 110 , REL 211 , REL 212 , or REL 221 . Depending on the transferring institution, students should consider taking foreign language and/or Physical Education courses. Students transferring to NC A&T should take MAT 152  and BIO 111 . For UNCG, students should take MAT 280 , CIS 115  and foreign language courses.
