    Whether degrees of a particular subject are awarded as a Bachelor of Science or a Bachelor of Arts varies between universities. For example, an economics degree may be awarded as a Bachelor of Arts by one university but as a Bachelor of Science by another, and occasionally, both options are offered. Some universities offer the Bachelor of Arts even in math and the sciences, while other institutions offer only the Bachelor of Science, even in non-science fields.

    At universities that offer both Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees in the same discipline, the Bachelor of Science degree is usually more focused on that particular discipline and is targeted toward students intending to pursue graduate school or a profession in that discipline.

    It does work, people attached to journalism, law, teaching and many more can have jobs by getting degrees in Arts prior to completing professional courses such as degree /diploma in journalism, law etc.It primarily depends on how one moulds oneself to cope with.

    It's a degree without a linear career path certainly. But any degree can be useful if you have great wits about you, are innately intelligent and have the right connections to get a job.

    The difference between a BA and a BS is what school of classes you took it from. 

    If you get a degree from the school of engineering, it’s a BS. If you enrolled in the arts and science, it’s a BA.
