BA vs. BS in Computer Science
I am a very confused high school student who is beginning his college application process to universities. I am applying as a computer science major, and recently discovered that there are actually two different types of obtainable degrees: One as a Bachelor of Arts and one as a Bachelor of Science. Now I know that traditionally a BA involves less courses and usually allows one to double major or minor in something else. Although I do plan on minoring in Political Science, I believe that I could handle the coursework for both a Computer Science BS major. Earning a degree as a BA would be easier, and might allow me to minor in something else, or even change my minor to a double major. However, what I would like to know is if this will have any future job implications? Is a BA degree in Computer Science worth less than a BS degree in the real world?
