Contrary to popular belief, math and the arts are not mutually exclusive. In fact, math can be the major focus of an Arts degree. Math and the arts have a natural association. Many mathematicians consider their field to be an art as much as a science. Math combines scientific principles and liberal arts concepts in ways similar to fields such as linguistics, psychology, human geography and branches of anthropology. A Bachelor of Arts in Math is similar to a Bachelor of Science in Math, except that it incorporates more of a liberal arts focus into a student’s core requirements.
