If you attend university you may be awarded a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree or Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree, depending on your college major. You’re awarded a Bachelor of Arts degree if you study the humanities or social sciences. Subjects that fall under social sciences include psychology, history, political studies and economics. Modern languages, music and theatre fall under the humanities umbrella. You may want to cite your Bachelor of Arts degree after your name in correspondence or on your business card.
- Skill level:
Write your full name including your title at the beginning: Mr., Mrs., Dr. or Prof.
Add a comma after your full name, then write the letters “B.A.” to signify that you hold a Bachelor of Arts degree.
Check your signature to ensure that it’s accurate. The correct way to write a Bachelor of Arts degree after your name: Jane T Smith, B.A.
Tips and warnings
- If you hold more than one degree, the correct format is to write the abbreviated name of the lowest degree after your name followed by the next higher degree. For example, if you hold both a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Arts degree, you would write: Jane T. Smith, B.A., M.A.
