What is a BS Degree?

No, it doesn’t stand for bull sh*t. We don’t know why anyone would want to earn that. The “BS” in “BS Degree” actually stands for Bachelor of Science. It’s one of the 2 primary types of bachelor degrees, the other being the Bachelor of Arts or BA. BS degrees are typically awarded in the more scientific and concrete disciplines like math, physics, engineering, and chemistry. A bachelor of science can also be earned in many business disciplines, such as economics, finance, and accounting.

So the next time someone asks if you have your BS, don’t get all defensive. They just want to know what your college major was.
