    B.A. provides a grounding across the arts and sciences. You will learn how your art form fits into the trajectory of history, thought, and cultural context. BFA might seem like the path toward professionalism, but a B.A. can get you there as well. Ironically, with fewer majors, you could end up with more stage experience than your BFA counterparts.

    BFA (Bachelor's of Fine Arts) would only be relevant to employers seeking artists - e.g. professional musician for a symphony, artist for advertising art work, drama major auditioning for parts, dancers for dance troupes, or similar.

    It truly depends on what you plan to do with it.

    The BFA is more impressive socially and personally, but not for employment purposes.  It often means the BFA person is only interested in one of the fine arts, whereas the BA is more normal and could fit in with more types of employment.

    The degrees are equal in level. A BFA fits into a specific niche market (the arts), but it shouldn't exclude you from any other job that requires a Bachelor's degree.
