What is the difference between B.A. and B.Sc. Psychology? Is one better than the other? How exactly do they effect my choice of career?
Interesting question. Though the answer to the question lies in the question asked itself.
Thanks for writing to www.careerguide.com!
Very interesting question. Just to add my perspective that may help you. In India, there is no difference in BA or BSc. The central content of the syllabus of the graduate course more or less remain the same. The minor difference between BA/BSc is that BA is offered in ARTS stream while BSc is offered in Science stream.
Do not worry about BA/BSc label. It doesn't matter whether you have taken up BA or BSc. In India most Universities offer BA course while very few Universities offer BSc. Both students are equally eligible for post graduate course in Psychology. Look at the course syllabus offered by the UGC recognized University and choose the University that offers comprehensive introduction to psychology and offer studies in major fields of psychology.
Hope I have clarified your doubt. Feel free to revert back if you have more queries.
Best Wishes for your bright career,Apurva Kumar Pandya, PhD
