BA vs. BS in Psychology

Would there be any advantage to earning a BA, rather than a BS, in Psychology if I continue on for a higher degree?

BA vs. BS in Psychology

It depends on what higher degree program you choose. A Bachelor's in Arts Degree in Psychology can be applied towards a Master's of Arts Degree in Psychology, and also to some other related Arts Degree programs. A BA in Psychology is most likely to transfer without taking any or many further courses before admission to a Master's in Arts Degree in Psychology, or maybe a Master's in Psychology (MPsy) program. Other courses will probably be required before admission to a Masters in Arts program in a related or different field. Applying a BA in Psychology towards an MS in Psychology or another sciences program would require, most likely and at least, more science coursework.
