Best Answer

The Artium Baccalaureatus (A.B.) Degree is the same as a Bachelor's in Arts (B.A.). American universities use either the A.B. or B.A. terminology, but not usually both.

Harvard, Cornell, and Princeton are among the American universities that grant the A.B. degree rather than B.A. In the past, an A.B. designated studies in the classical arts; today, it is indistinguishable from a B.A.
