Do I put simply BA or BA Honors if I graduated with honors? Thanks!

You're an honors student, figure it out.

Kidding. I think most people just put, "BA," lest they look like assholes. Just be sure to put the "BA with Honors" on your resume, or "Graduated from blah blah blah Honors Program." But putting it in the "Degree Earned" field would kind of silly, I think.

I'm pretty sure the degree itself is just a B.A. That you earned it with honors doesn't go in that field. Put the honors on your resume.

+1

mine says:


Education
********** University, *******, Texas
Bachelor of Arts, cum laude, May 2010
Cumulative GPA X.xx
Major, uslessmajor GPA X.xx
Second major, basket weaving GPA X.xx

Because I had no WE and a lower LSAC GPA I wanted to highlight some more academic crap than most.
