      Yes! So many jobs! Once you get into science you can pick so many different fields. You can stay in science and do research into any area that interests you, for example as a neuroscientist you can look at the development of the brain, or the aging of the brain or you can pick a certain part of the brain to study like the visual system or you can pick a certain disease. Then you can teach, or go into industry and work on making medical devices or you could use your science knowledge to work in news. There is so much you can do with a science degree that I dont have space to list them all here!!!

      I do recommend studying science. Learning science teaches you so many skills you can use in other jobs. I’ve had students who have gone on to work in accounting, business, science research, writing, teaching, and even cooking after their zoology degrees! You learn a lot about statistics, note taking, and creative thinking during a science degree. It’s also really fun!

      Physics is third for employability after becoming a lawyer or a doctor/nurse. There are few jobs that would not look kindly on a physicist.
