Bachelor of Arts vs. Bachelor of Science

For most of our degree programs, a BA will usually require less math/science courses and allow more electives than a BS.

What are your goals?

A BA is great for students who want to teach at the high school level or go into a particular industry--like business or medicine.

A BS is great for students who may want to continue their studies into graduate school, go into academia, or do research professionally.

If you're not sure which degree program is right for you, our advisors are happy to guide you to the choice that's right for you and your goals.
