What Is The Difference Between A Bs & A Ba? More Options ?
Q: I am finishing up my studies in Special Education in the state of Florida. Here, we have the VE program, supposedly that's the way it's going to be all over. I am at a turning point, my counselor says there is no difference between a BS & B
A: From what I have been told in the past from counselors is
that a science degree does not transfer up to the next degree while an arts
degree does. How does this affect me when I go for my Masters? How does this
affect my salary?
This counselor also says that the only time an arts degree is better than a
science degree is when someone wants to teach at the Junior College level.
A:I may be wrong, but I thought the only difference between a BS and BA is the general ed science requirements. What is a VE program? I've never heard of it. I am attending Nova Southestern University but not the Ft. Lauderdale campus. I'm at the Las Vegas campus. I am finishing up my sped degree (do student teaching in the Fall) and we get all the Florida info but have never heard of a VE program. Just curious. :) I was always under the impression that a BA required a certain number of hours in a foreign language and a BS has more content area requirements. There should be effect whatsoever on your seeking a Masters unless the field you choose has a foreign language/BA requirement of some kind (which would be an exception and not the rule). Shouldn't make much difference WRT to teaching at Junior College either tho there might be preferences depending upon the specific subject area. I thought a science degree would have more science based classes and an arts degree would cover more liberal arts. When I discussed this with my counselor, she said all I have to do to change my science degree (which is not what I had been going there for) to an arts degree would be to take my second half of my language and an exit course... of Crime, violence and guns! Not really what I had in mind! It looks to me like the "professionals" at the college level do not know what they are doing in regards to the different degrees. They have everyone listed as a Bachelor of Science... unless they complain loud enough. I do have some language in my college background, but I have to complete an additional semester. Also, my exit course, I feel does not go with my primary area. Crime, violence and guns. I know some of our schools have had problems, but I thought it had to pertain to our degree.
