Hi,

There is a lot of difference between BA Psychology and BA (Hons) Psychology.

In BA Psychology you will taught Psychology as one subject with other subjects like Hindi, English, Philosophy, Political Science etc..... but if you opt for a BA (Hons) in Psychology you will be taught only Psychology and its various Subjects like Child Psychology, Experimental Psychology, Research Methodology, Abnormal Psychology etc.....

BA (Hons) in Psychology will be anytime better than doing a BA Psychology course because it will help you gain a better understanding of the subject concerned.

Best Wishes!

Hi There,

Though I am aware that till this time, you might have made your choice.
But thought that this needs maintaining.

There is one additional difference apart from what the counselor above has mentioned.
When a student passes with Hons, they also have to submit a dissertation which is like a Research paper and only then will they be given their degree.

Wish you good luck....

Dear Aspirant,

Both Career Experts aptly clarified the difference between BA Psychology and BA Psychology Honors course. I am summarizing the key difference between the two.

BA Psychology (Honors) is basically designed to develop knowledge and skills required for a research. This degree includes specialisation where in you would study the subject in detail, and a combination of coursework and a research project.

BA Psychology (General) has Psychology is designed to provide broad overview of subjects. You study psychology as major along with other subjects as minors.

Dear Aspirant,

Any Honours course means it is in-depth and Honours course may also have another additional academic year. A normal graduation except Engineering, Medicine has 3 years, an Honours degree may have four years with a research project or dissertation.

Best wishes
