Subject: Psychology --- BA or BSc? (cont'd)
"If psychology is developing theories, testing theories, and making predictions, then it is a science."

^ Economics is also the same thing as you said. I have studied ECO before too. But it is just in the social science discipline. Dont forget ECO also has Econometrics, Statistics and Calculus for Economists. ECO is just end up with a BA degree only.

"psychology is both an art and a science dipshit, they would never have developed a BA degree in psyc if it wasnt an art."

^ 1000% Agreed

i agree, it is both an art and science. economics on the other hand is NOT a science.

although economics involved some math.. math itself is debatably an art as well, it is possible to optain a BSc or and BA in math. I would say that economics is a purebred art

^ I mean economics is also dealing with developing theories, testing theories, and making predictions too. But eco is is not a science course. Besides, eco also involves a lot of mathematics too. That is the same as psyc.

I just dont understand why psyc can be a science course but not eco??

Is it related to psychiatry and made it science??

Until about the end of the 19th century, psychology was regarded as a branch of philosophy.

"psychology is both an art and a science dipshit, they would never have developed a BA degree in psyc if it wasnt an art."

"dipshit" here, psych is offered as part of an arts degree at some schools because of the courses you take with it, not because of the course itself (you take the same psych courses regardless of what degree you are going for). Because of the subject matter, the principles of psych can be used to better understand an art like sociology, polisci, or philosophy, or can be used in conjuction with science courses like chem or bio. As a psych major, I find it hard to believe that anyone who has actually taken a class in the discipline could see it as an art.

What point are you trying to make???

if getting a BSc or a BA only depends if you pick arts or science electives, then shouldnt that mean that psychology is equally both a science and an art?

Do a degree in chemistry and take all your electives as arts, then see if they will give you an arts degree.
