# Bachelor of Arts/Science in Mathematics

The Bachelor of Arts / Science in Mathematics degree has six basic components:

- General Education & Institutional Requirements
- Foreign Language Requirement (Bachelor of Arts only)
- Mathematics Core Requirements
- Mathematics Electives
- Mathematics Program Requirements
- Electives: college-level courses from any prefix to meet Graduation Requirements

### DSU General Education & Institutional Requirements

All DSU General Education and Institutional requirements must be fulfilled. A previously earned degree may fulfill those requirements, but courses must be equivalent to DSU’s minimum General Education standards in American Institutions, English, and Mathematics.
