Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service awards Bachelor of Science degrees in Foreign Service to all of its undergraduates, although many students major in humanities-oriented fields such as international history or culture and politics. The London School of Economics offers BSc degrees in practically all subject areas, even those normally associated with the arts, while the Oxbridge universities almost exclusively award the BA as a first degree. In both instances, there are historical and traditional reasons.

Bachelor of Science is an academic degree awarded by a university or other qualified institution. It is a first degree, and is given to students who graduate in a science course. Bachelor's degrees may take three to five years to complete. The degree gives graduates the right to put BSc (or sometimes BS) after their name.

Under four years it says that everywhere in Canada except Quebec is four years. However on the diagram New Brunswick is coloured in blue, indicating 3 years. Can anyone find out what is wrong here? MTessier (talk) 22:07, 26 March 2012 (UTC)
Im not so sure that BS should redirect here. It should probably redirect to a list of articles using the BS abbreviation. It was kind of funny though when i searched BS on google and got Bachelor of Science
Don't put a giant list of countries in the intro. Just say "three to five years" or something, and elaborate elsewhere. — Omegatron06:25, 21 May 2007 (UTC)
Not at all universal. My university, for example, only awards B.Sc.'s in Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science, and Physics. The rest of the article acknowledges the difficulty and inconsistency in determining which subjects are "science," so is this list even necessary? MlleDiderot15:45, 21 May 2007 (UTC) I agree, I don't think we need this list. It's specific to the USA, and i anyone wants to know whether a subject is considered a science or not, the can look it up in its own page. University websites are a better reference than wikipedia for which universities offer which courses. If there are no objections I will remove at some stage. Mnd99917:10, 1 July 2007 (UTC) 1. You know what. I think I'll just remove it altogether. Right now it claims to be offered in the US, Turkey and Japan. Three almost random countries. Those subjects are offered elsewhere of course, and are not universally offered everywhere either.--Boffob (talk) 06:02, 24 February 2008 (UTC) A general idea of w...
Indeed, Spain is indicated as a 3 year BS in the graphic and as 5 year in the text. Correct fact would be the spanish BSc taking three years. The undergrad is called "Ingeniería técnica" and the a MSc would be just "Ingeniería". 01:17, 12 February 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk)
In the UK, the abbreviation of BSc. or BSc is used; there are no dots after the B This pages definately reflects a USA view point, and not a worldwide one. Sam —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 07:14, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
This section, by Oivimoen has been discussed thoroughly on the Norwegian Wikipedia, and has been deemed to be pushing of a certain point of view by a single individual, which led to the article no:Bachelor of Sciencebeing locked, and the aforementioned user being blocked from editing the Norwegian Wikipedia for a week. A thorough thinking-through should be done as to whether this information truely belongs in this article, as it really is one man's attempt to discredit Norwegian education and exhalt his own, UK Bachelor of science degree. I will be happy to answer any questions about this, please do not hesitate to ask me. Alternatively, one might ask User:Røed, who is an admin on the Norwegian Wikipedia, and was involved in this process. V85 (talk) 17:40, 17 September 2008 (UTC) Thank you for mentioning me.

The duration of a regular Bachelor's degree in Portugal has come down to three years. While this is correct in the text, the image still shows a 4-year duration. Could someone change this? ~ Jotomicron21:26, 8 June 2009 (UTC)
Please, make no mistake: bachelor degrees in Spain don't last five years (and have never lasted), but three. Five or Six years programs in Spain grant you the so-called Título de Licenciado, which is an equivalent to a Master Degree. The Título de Diplomado, which would be the academic equivalent to a Bachelor's degree, lasts for three years. The main confussion about all this is that in Spain college students don't get a BSc or BA after completing their first three years in college: from the very first moment of chosing their degrees they have to choose either to go for a Licenciatura (MA, MSc,...) degree, which is the most common chose, or for a Diplomatura(BSc, BA,...) degree, which is only offered for certain subjects (Education, minor engineering,...) and does not offer an easy chance to go for a Master's degree after ending the Diplomatura program (allowing this only to the most outstanding students, and only for certain Master Degrees). Both programs are closed, i.e., student...
There are other degrees as well, which is something to remember when discussing what courses may attract a BSc. For instance here in the UK you can justify the sentiment that a BA in Computer Science would be unusual but that does not make it "almost universally" a BSc - it is quite commonly awarded a BEng instead.
