It all depends on the university you’re going to. A B.S. has to do with the sciences (biology, chemistry, etc), and a B.A. has to do with other stuff (music, for example). You always get your bachelor’s degree in secondary education, because primary is K-12 LOL the minors or the emphasis that are offered for a certain major vary with the colleges. I’m not sure what else you’re asking, but basically like, if you want to major in Music, you would either get a B.A. or a B.M. (bachelor of music, generally only given for performance majors), and if you want an emphasis, you might have the option of ethnomusicology (world music), conducting, etc. Courses-wise, you have to take courses relating to your major’s requirements. For example, music majors must complete a music theory series of classes as part of the graduation requirements. It all depends on your major, because each major is different. Good luck!

The difference is just in the subject matters that you study to get one or the other. If you pick a major in the fields such as biology, chemistry, physics, etc. then you will be working towards a Bachelor of Science. If you pick a major in the humanities like literature, philosophy, history, music, etc. then you will be working towards a Bachelor of Arts.

Ultimately what you decide to major in depends on what you want to study and what you want to use your degree for. Whether it’s a B.A. or a B.S. doesn’t really matter. You pick a minor only if it will help you in the field that you decide to study. You can pick whatever major and minor you want. (I got my Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature and minored in Philosophy.)

If there is a career choice you want to get into, you can look into what kind of major and minor are best suited to get you a job in it. When you get into college, the advisors there can also give you more advice.
