Not all discrimination is bad. Racial discrimination is bad. As is discriminating on any irrelevant criteria.

But crackhead discrimination is just smart. BA discrimination is closer to crackhead discrimination then racial.

The only rigorous liberal arts school remaining is 'The University of Chicago'. The rest have bought into relativism and it's whole constellation of bullshit.

IF CS has the same math requirement for a BA and a BS it is the only science that does so. A BA in a science tell me you took the science, without any math or science.

It should be noted that math requirements for CS vary widely. Some places let them get by with calc for business majors, others make them take the full Engineering/hard science calc sequence.

The 'College of Arts and Sciences' includes liberal arts but is not limited to only liberal arts. I've never seen a 'liberal arts college'. I suspect the liberal arts profs don't want it as they see the terrible reputation education schools have earned themselves and want to keep the water at least a little muddy.

There are rare exceptions. In general a BA in a science means you took the 'baby' version of all classes. e.g. P chem without math or physics, calculus for business majors etc etc. Lots of hand waving and memorize and regurgitate. No understanding.

I won't hire a BA in a science for a technical position.

If it smells it's chemistry, if it crawls it's biology, if it doesn't work it's physics.

Working...
