Differences between BA and BSc. Would be great to hear from students on either course.
I've moved the thread to the Sheffield forum to help you get replies :smile:

Hi,

The main difference between the two is just the subject matter.

A BA is a bachelor of arts, so for example, will be used for the humanities, English, languages and the arts.

A BSc is a bachelor of science, so will be the sciences, maths and other science based courses.

Due to this split in subjects, a BA will have more of a focus on skills like communication and critical thinking whereas a BSc would be more focussed on logic and numerical or scientific skills.

Sometimes a BA will have a broader scope of content whereas a BSc will be more specific or specialised.

What subject are you asking this in reference to?
