    That's interesting. May I ask at what uni so I can look it up? I'd have guessed it'd be a Philosophy course with greater emphasis on analytic philosophy and Logic (similar skills to maths)

    To be honest, they look extremely similar. Normally if one is a BA and the other a BSc then the BSc will contain more quantitative and maths elements. But here both courses look very similar, so I wouldn't have though it mattered which one you go for (it may even be a secretarial error)

    BA is an Arts and Humanities degree; and for Philosophy that would be looking at philosophical concepts such as evil; religion, philosophy of the mind, epistemology, moral psychology, ethics and so forth.

    BSc is a Science degree; and for Philosophy that would most likely involve a lot more quantitative research and scientific philosophy like quantum theory, philosophy of time and space, natural philosophy (physics, biology and chemistry), logic and mathematics, philosophy of science, experimental philosophy, maybe language and philosophy of the mind too.
