I hear people a lot of time saying B.A. with honors. What is the difference between simple B.A. and B.A. with honors?

Or an honours degree has more than one major. My first degree was an honours course over three years, but had two majors.Hi LRR,
Please explain those red parts.
Anonymous:Has anyone noticed that the practical differences between the two degrees have not been mentioned at all? The only answer we seem to have generated is that one (honours) takes longer and is more difficult.
The impression my own University counselling staff gives me is that, unless you're headed for a Masters, the differences are minimal, practically speaking. Your employability is not significantly different with or without honours, especially if your degree won't yield corporate interest.
Would that I could claim my degree is valuable in itself but post-secondary education is an efficiency-based system that I have found more emotionally and financially taxing than it is constructive.
People are waiting to help.
