A Bachelor of Science is an undergraduate academic degree awarded for completed courses that generally last three to five years. Whether a subject is considered a science or an art, can vary between universities. For example, an economics degree may be given as a B.A. by one university but as a B.Sc. by another. Biology, biochemistry, mathematics, physics, chemistry, social science, sport/exercise science, general science, earth science, computer science and the various fields of engineering are almost universally considered to be sciences. Even in cases of near-unilateral consensus across a country as to whether a subject is a science or an art, there are exceptions. The London School of Economics offers B.Sc. degrees in practically all subject areas, even those normally associated with arts degrees, while the Oxbridge universities almost exclusively award arts qualifications.
