What's the difference between a BA and a BSc in Architecture!? My Science teacher says if you want to actually build buildings you should choose a BSc and not a BA. What I have researched does not seem to support this but I want to be sure.
Also, do they have different entry requirements? I am planning to take English, German, Sociology or Psychology and Graphics or Geography at A-Level, and have predicted A/Bs in Maths and Physics. First I need to know what course to go for and whether these choices are suitable. Please help!

BSc are Bachelors of Science, BA Bachelor of Arts. BSc's tend to be more vocational and have slightly better job prospects in general (it totally depends on the course). BSc's are more scientific where as a BA is more about creativiity and that kind of thing. I've always been told that BSc graduates are slightly more employable but BA's are more general so its easier to go to into different careers after graduation.

There is little between them though, I would say the university matters more than the title.
