    Bachelor of Art (BA)

    Bachelor of Science (BSc)


    It's just a reflection on the focus of your degree.

    Also, the Americans usually call a BSc a BS, which is short for Bull ****.

    some courses will let you choose which one you want tho- i'm doing a maths and psychology course (4years because it's a scottish uni) and i can choose whether i want a BSc or MA (masters of arts, scotland generally don't award BAs)... i can't even remember which i applied for (and it doesn't actually make a difference to the course)

    And some places (ie Oxbridge) give you BAs no matter what area your degree is in, just to confuse the matter!
