The distinction between a degree in "Arts" and a degree in "Science" is the number of Liberal Arts and Sciences credits required. Liberal Arts and Sciences include subjects within the areas of humanities, social sciences, mathematics, and natural sciences. Subjects not included in the category of Liberal Arts and Sciences are those of a technical, professional, or occupationally-oriented nature. In other words, subjects involving the application of knowledge to particular activities such as business, technology, health care, social services and teaching are not considered Liberal Arts. A candidate who meets the requirements for a degree in "Arts" has the option of receiving the degree in "Science" instead.
