BA stands for Bachelor of Arts, and encompasses a myriad of subjects such as philosophy, psychology, history, economics, and languages, such as English and French. All of these subjects are included in the BA program. Anything job oriented can be found in a BA program.

For the people who complete the program successfully, the job opportunity area is wide open. A student has to finish his or her BA degree to become eligible for their master’s degree. MFA or Master of Fine Arts programs or degrees encompass the fine arts such as music, drawing, painting, carpentry, and dance.

Students of MFA that study music will get the chance to explore every aspect of musicology. These students may also be suitable as music performers. BA and MFA are three-year programs. However, MFA can take longer.
