Bachelor of Science (BS) vs. Bachelor of Arts (BA): is there a difference?

The primary difference between a BS and BA degree is the general positioning of their curriculums:

  • Bachelor of Arts (BA): typically concerns a wider variety of liberal arts subjects not directly related to the major. Offered in fields such as the humanities, social sciences, foreign languages and communication.
  • Bachelor of Science (BS): typically more strictly focused on the subject matter directly related to the major. Often offered in technical subjects like computer science, physical sciences, nursing or mathematics.
