What is the difference between Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Applied Science?
I see some universities like York offering Bachelor of Science and universities like Guelph-Humber offering Bachelor of applied Science. If there is a difference... which is better to get?

'applied science' is for engineering. I think.

depends on the program, some places offer it like was said for engineering but most often it seems to be applied, especially in the case of guelph-humber from what i can tell to be a designation separation quite literally the more applied sciences like nutrition and kinesiology depending on the focus of the program. Neither is really better than the other because they both train you in a specific domain it just depends on the specific domain and school you wish to pursue.

Bachelor of Science (BSc.) is a degree awarded for completing anything to do with the sciences
Bachelor of Applied Science (BASc.) is more tricky: in Canada it's the equivalent of the US's BEng. (i.e. it is an engineering degree)

Hope this clears it up smile
