Like learning a language, the study of mathematics gives a new perspective on the world. Mathematicians and engineers seek ways to better understand numbers and space, and there are many applications of mathematics in our increasingly high-technology economy. Pursuing an Associate of Arts, Oregon Transfer (AAOT) degree at Clatsop opens the door to careers in engineering, computer science and statistics. Teachers with a focus on mathematics continue to be in high demand, and the AAOT is a good first step towards a degree in mathematics education. Your advisor can help you select mathematics classes that are challenging and help you reach your goal.
