# Sample TESU BA Mathematics Degree Plan

# Generic BA Mathematics Degree Plan[edit]

This is a generic degree plan that applies to Thomas Edison State University for a Bachelor Arts in Mathematics as of approximately June of 2021. Please make sure that the suggestions are still valid before beginning to follow this plan.

This degree requires a number of credits that cannot be obtained via alternative means. Rather than putting most of your RA requirements into the General Education credits, you can use the AOS.

## General Education Requirements[edit]

As of 2021, students will be required to have a minimum of 30 RA credits to complete their degree. See the GE Requirements Roadmap for details and suggestions on courses that will fill this requirement.

## Mathematics AOS[edit]

42 credits are in the AOS. 15 credits + capstone need to be UL.

### Part A. Calculus I[edit]
