The BMCC Department of Mathematics offers an Associate of Science (A.S.) degree in Mathematics as well as one in Data Science. The programs are designed to provide you with the first two years of study required to major (or minor) in mathematics, data science or a related field at the senior college level.
In addition to math course requirements for liberal arts majors and elementary calculus and linear algebra, we offer math courses such as: ordinary differential equations, advanced calculus, abstract algebra, history of mathematics, statistics and computer programming.
Resources and Support
The Math Lab provides resources and support for both math majors and students in other fields who are taking math courses. Online and in-person tutoring as well as downloadable materials and sample tests are available.
Students who have satisfied certain requirements can apply for part time work as Math Lab Tutors.
Math/Stem activities such as the Math Team, Math Club and Math Lounge offer opportunities for students to grow and enhance their skills, as well as socialize with others.
At BMCC, there are opportunities for students to work on a mathematical research project with a faculty mentor. The Office of Internships and Experiential Learning has a number of internships opportunities for math majors or students with strong mathematics skills.
The math major provides the foundation for many career paths such as becoming a teacher or professor, a mathematician, a statistician, an actuary, a financial analyst, a research analyst, a software designer and developer, a consultant, an engineer, a financial engineer, a cryptographer, a scientist, and many others.
