We believe that Casper College offers one of the finest programs in mathematics in the region. We have excellent facilities, award winning teachers, comprehensive student support and an outstanding curriculum. Our program is large enough to offer many specialized courses in mathematics such as differential equations, linear algebra and discrete mathematics. Yet with our small class sizes and a faculty devoted to teaching, you get a tremendous amount of individual attention. This combination has allowed our students to successfully transfer and graduate from universities such as University of Colorado, University of Utah, University of Maryland, Montana State, University of Wyoming and many others.
The Mathematics Department at Casper College offers two different associate degrees, the Associate of Science in Mathematics and the Associate of Science in Mathematics for future high school teachers. The Associate of Science in Mathematics degree will prepare you well for either additional study in mathematics or a career in a variety of technology related fields. Many of our former students who have earned this degree have gone on to study mathematics at the graduate school level. The Associate of Science in Mathematics for future high school teachers prepares students for a career in secondary mathematics teaching. The mathematics department has a number of partnerships with the Natrona County School District to offer students the opportunity gain experience in the classroom while at Casper College. In addition many students in this program are given the opportunity to be a tutor in our mathematics learning center and gain valuable experience working with students at all levels.
What can you do with a mathematics degree?
The answer is simple: Anything you want!
Careers are available for mathematics majors in many fields including actuarial, finance, engineering, education, human resources, business management, computer science, government, statistics, research, even law enforcement. Employees with knowledge in mathematics is becoming more and more essential in many fields, and can lead to a rewarding career or be a jumping-off point for further research and education in any of the fields listed above. Organizations like the American Statistical Association, the American Mathematical Society, and the Association for Women in Mathematics have good information on their websites regarding careers for mathematics majors.
