The mathematics and science emphasis serves students who wish to transfer and enter career programs which depend upon a background in mathematics and/or science.
PROGRAM STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES
MATHEMATICS: demonstrate competence in arithmetic, algebra, geometry, data analysis, and quantitative reasoning.
NATURAL SCIENCES: demonstrate understanding of the methods scientists use to explore natural phenomena, including observation, hypothesis development, measurement and data collection, experimentation, evaluation of evidence, and employment of mathematical analysis.
COMMUNICATION & INFORMATION: Employ proficient written and verbal communication skills, including the appropriate uses of technology.
REASONING: identify, analyze, and evaluate arguments as they occur in their own and others' work and develop well-reasoned argument.
INFORMATION MANAGEMENT: perform the basic operations of personal computer use, understand and use basic research techniques and locate, evaluate, and synthesize information from a variety of sources.
Transferability: Students will successfully transfer to a bachelor or associate degree.
DIRECT ENTRY INTO BACCALAUREATE DEGREE PROGRAM
Alfred State liberal arts & sciences: math and science graduates may enter directly into the technology management BBA degree program.
This program offers two options: liberal arts & sciences: math & science or pre-environmental science & forestry. The first allows students the opportunity to concentrate in either math and/or science. This program is designed in such a way that the student and adviser work together to match courses at Alfred State with first- and second-year courses at the desired transfer school so that the student may enter a baccalaureate program as a full third-year student. Some typical fields of study which graduates choose to enter are mathematics, statistics, math or science education, physical education, biology, chemistry, physics, physical therapy, athletic training, engineering, pre-med, pre-vet, dentistry, or pharmacy.
Articulation agreements are available with SUNY Pre-Environmental Science and Forestry at Syracuse (environmental science), New York Chiropractic College, and SUNY Health Science Center at Syracuse (joint admission).
Employment and transfer rate of 100 percent – 15 percent are employed; 85 percent transferred to continue their education.
