While the core mathematics courses are the same, the specific degree requirements vary. A bachelor of science in mathematics requires a 30-hour concentration from the natural sciences: biology, chemistry, physics & astronomy, or computer information science. A bachelor of art requires modern language study and more hours from the humanities and social sciences.
