Program Advantages

Bryce Warren | Liberal Arts & Sciences: Math & Science Video

The mathematics and science emphasis will provide you with a solid foundation in mathematics and/or science, perfect for transferring and entering into career programs that depend on those skills.

This program is designed in such a way that students and advisers 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. Alfred State also offers math and science students direct entry into either the interdisciplinary studies, BTech, or the technology management BBA degree programs.

Professional Outlook

Employment of high school teachers is projected to grow 8 percent from 2020 to 2030, about as fast as the average for all occupations.

About 77,400 openings for high school teachers are projected each year, on average, over the decade. Many of those openings are expected to result from the need to replace workers who transfer to different occupations or exit the labor force, such as to retire.

“I came to Alfred State because it was a great local college that allowed me to get my feet wet with the college experience and had a dedicated faculty that helped me throughout my college experience. A lot of the professors I had, I’m still in contact with today.” -Zachary Smith, '09
