           B.); the second that of {master of arts} (M. A. or A.
           M.). The degree of bachelor (of arts, science,
           divinity, law, etc.) is conferred upon those who
           complete a prescribed course of undergraduate study.
           The first degree in medicine is that of {doctor of
           medicine} (M. D.). The degrees of master and doctor are
           also conferred, in course, upon those who have
           completed certain prescribed postgraduate studies, as
           {doctor of philosophy} (Ph. D.); the degree of doctor
           is also conferred as a complimentary recognition of
           eminent services in science or letters, or for public
           services or distinction (as {doctor of laws} (LL. D.)
           or {doctor of divinity} (D. D.), when they are called
           {honorary degrees}.

     8. (Algebra) State as indicated by sum of exponents; more
        particularly, the degree of a term is indicated by the sum
        of the exponents of its literal factors; thus, a^{2}b^{3}c
        is a term of the sixth degree. The degree of a power, or
        radical, is denoted by its index, that of an equation by
        the greatest sum of the exponents of the unknown
        quantities in any term; thus, ax^{4} + bx^{2} = c, and
        mx^{2}y^{2} + nyx = p, are both equations of the fourth
        degree.

     {Degree of a curve} or {Degree of a surface} (Geom.), the
        number which expresses the degree of the equation of the
        curve or surface in rectilinear coordinates. A straight
        line will, in general, meet the curve or surface in a
        number of points equal to the degree of the curve or
        surface and no more.
  
     {Degree of latitude} (Geog.), on the earth, the distance on a
        meridian between two parallels of latitude whose latitudes
        differ from each other by one degree. This distance is not
        the same on different parts of a meridian, on account of
        the flattened figure of the earth, being 68.702 statute
        miles at the equator, and 69.396 at the poles.
  
     {Degree of longitude}, the distance on a parallel of latitude
        between two meridians that make an angle of one degree
        with each other at the poles -- a distance which varies as
        the cosine of the latitude, being at the equator 69.16
        statute miles.
  
     {To a degree}, to an extreme; exceedingly; as, mendacious to
