    Might say: I'm earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in philosophy. I'm working towards a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering.

    Or if you are in graduate school: I'm working towards a Master of Arts degree in History, with a specialization in early-modern European history.

    Would anyone actually say "of arts" or "of science"? In spoken language, it might seem somehwhat stuffy or pretentious? And I think many people would omit the "bachelor's" too. Unless it's a Masters or PhD, we (AE) tend to assume a 4 year bachelor's degree.

    I'm earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in philosophy. I'm working towards a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering.

    Although many people WOULD say:

    I'm working towards a BSME, especially to other students or colleagues who would know what a BSME means.
