    They are actually the same thing, just one in English and one in, I believe, Latin.

    They are both 4 years of heaven or hell, depending on your career choice.

    As previously stated, the two are the same thing.

    It was my understanding though that Bachelor's was the older, more male-centred way of stating the degree...and a Baccalaurate is gender-neutral (hence being appropriate for the large number of WOMEN in a nursing programme :-D)

    The baccalaureate signifies completion of undergraduate studies and comprises arts, humanities, social sciences, etc. The Bachelor of ______ (arts, science, etc) is the awarded degree in the particular field of study.
