Math & Sciences


Mathematics and science are critical areas for a rapidly changing, increasing competitive global economy and society.  "To succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEM to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past.” (National Science Foundation).  Technology is pervasive in almost every aspect of daily life, and as the workplace changes, STEM knowledge and skills grow in importance for a variety of workers (not just for mathematicians and scientists). 


There are several exciting work avenues to pursue:  scientific research in laboratories or in the field, involvement in the planning and design of products and systems, and working as support for scientists, mathematicians, or engineers so they can do their work. All of the opportunities in Math & Sciences involve gathering and processing data to solve problems. Work with your advisor to get started on your path to success!

Student Testimonial

“I’m really thankful for CCC. It has been a growing experience. I’m a more knowledgeable father, more focused on my sons’ development … We’re all striving for a better life.” -  Eli Secody, marketing and cultural advisor for Adventures Antelope Canyon in Page and CCC anthropology student

“I would really encourage (potential students) to look into their local community college. They have classes that are online. They have classes that are in the evenings, where you can take a class here and there just to see … if it’s really something you want to take to make that jump to.” - Richard Ramirez, medical student and CCC alum
