A snippet from Pastor Paul Enenche’s Sunday service held on April 14, 2024, went viral on social media.

In the trending clip, a woman stood on the pulpit to narrate how she became the first graduate in her family due to some spiritual forces stopping her and her siblings from attending universities.


Paul Enenche: All You Need To Know About University Degree Titles

The lady was grateful to God for successfully bagging a law degree from the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN).

During her testimony, Pastor Paul Enenche asked her the kind of degree she bagged; the woman responded “BSc. Law,” to which Pastor Paul replied, stating there is no such degree, implying she gave a false testimony.

In the world of academia, the array of university degrees can sometimes be confusing. From Bachelor of Science to Doctor of Philosophy, each degree holds its significance and purpose.


However, as a recent incident highlighted, not all degree titles may be what they seem.

Understanding Degree Titles

Bachelor of Science (BSc)

Typically awarded for scientific, technical, or professional programs.

However, there is no specific “BSc. Law” degree title; instead, law degrees are often titled as Bachelor of Laws (LLB) or Juris Doctor (JD).

Bachelor of Arts (BA)

A degree title often associated with disciplines in the humanities, social sciences, and liberal arts.


Art students pursuing degrees in fields like Fine Arts, Art History, or Visual Arts typically earn a Bachelor of Arts.

Bachelor of Laws (LLB)

A common undergraduate law degree, especially in Commonwealth countries.


Juris Doctor (JD)

A professional doctorate and first professional graduate degree in law, predominantly awarded in the United States.

The Significance of Accurate Degree Titles

Degree titles hold weight in the academic and professional world.

They signify the specific field of study completed by an individual, influencing their career path and opportunities.

Misrepresenting a degree title, whether intentionally or due to misunderstanding, can lead to confusion and potential misinterpretation of qualifications.
