What does psych BA look like?
#1
Hi.  Will the degree look any different than the BALS?  One person at TESU said they both say BA liberal studies.  Thanks
#2
For TESU? My diploma says "Bachelor of Arts" (TESU doesn't put the major on their diplomas) but my transcript indicates the area of study as Psychology, no "Liberal Arts" on there.

Thanks JSD.  I really wish they put the major.

Their diploma looks really boring, bland & empty. I really wish they'd change it to look more sophisticated & classic & not to even list a major makes it even worse, I mean if you're graduating ivy league or other top 10 schools then not listing major doesn't sound nearly as bad because you've more than likely already have something set up for work or are using a strong alumni network to find a job but if you're graduating from an adult-focused institution where students are usually trying to find jobs or improve job prospects then making sure a major is on the diploma would be in the best interests of its graduates. Anyway, I got a bit bored & made a sample of what I wish TESU's diploma for BA grads looked like.

Oh, I hate that it will just say "Bachelor of Arts". So nobody will know if my major was Computer Science versus Basket Weaving.

I mean, if a person were to hang it in their office. I wouldn't hang a generic degree like that for most fields...

Exactly why I'm doing the BALS. The degree should reflect the rigor/focus. At age 50, no one's going to want to see my transcript. If I need knowledge to prep for a Masters: YouTube , books and cheap/free online classes can get me up to speed (without all the transfer/cost/acceptance complexities).
