According to the University of Arkansas, "The Department of Biological Sciences offers two degree programs, one leading to a Bachelor of Science and the other leading to a Bachelor of Arts. A Bachelor of Science degree is for those students who seek a degree with a broad background in the life sciences. The B.S. is recommended for students planning to continue their education in basic or applied biology in graduate or professional school. A Bachelor of Arts degree is available for students who do not necessarily plan on a career as a professional biologist but who desire a good foundation in the discipline. Students seeking research experience are invited to participate in the college honors program."
