The TESU website uses "bachelor's" when talking generically, and "Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies" when being specific. If you're looking to shorten it for your sig, I'd use "BA in Liberal Studies".

Generally, the word bachelor's is only used in an informal sense (e.g., "I've got a bachelor's in biology") and you'd refer to your BALS as either a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies or a BA Liberal Studies.
