Do you like science? You have many career opportunities ahead of you, depending on what area of science you’re interested in. A few things you can pursue independent of your specific science interest include:

  • Science writing: Write articles about science that appear in newspapers or online publications
  • Science advocacy: Work for science literacy and funding
  • Science education: Teach science in a classroom or camp
  • Science research: Make new discoveries that will benefit everyone

You can also check out our biology, chemistry, and physics guides for more opportunities.

You’ll need a bachelor’s degree in a science field for most of these positions. Some coursework in other sciences, math, and computer science will help as well. If you’re interested in an advanced research position, you’ll probably need an advanced degree.
