Are all BSc subjects included in the STEM degree group?

BSc = Bachelor of Science
STEM = S = Science

Or am I wrong?

Instead of saying that user made a dumb comment, why don't you explain WHY it's a dumb comment and/or answer the question in the OP.

No. I'm pretty sure I've heard of subjects like economics and geography classifying as BSc - the letters aren't important; the degree content is what counts when considering if it's science or not.

Check this list.

If it's in categories A - K it's considered STEM.

So why are they BSc's if they don't have anything scientific within them? Do BSc's not have some kind of 'science content' within them compared to BAs?

Geography is a physical science and it is a STEM degree

No **** :laugh:.
So if a BSc has more 'maths' content, does that not make it at least part of the 'M' in STEM?

No
The m is for proper maths.

IDK what you're getting at. If it's a BSc it tends to be more science/maths oriented than a BA, which is why some subjects (like economics) can be one or the other. Doesn't affect whether or not it's classed as a 'STEM degree'.
