DegreeForum.net user Lindagerr completed a Bachelor of Arts in Natural Science and Mathematics degree at Thomas Edison State University using the below degree plan.

Important note from Lindagerr:

I was enrolled before TESC changed the requirement to need 18 Upper level (300-400 level) in your area of study.

NOTE:  This degree was completed prior to the requirement by TESC of a capstone course for all BA degrees that was implemented in 2012.  Always check their website for the most current information.
