Mansur’s Answer

It would be good to narrow down which science field you are interested in. Physics, Chemistry, Biology etc. If you have studied any of these in high school or you can take courses at a community college. Once you know which fields, most likely getting a bachelor's degree from an accredited university would be the way to go. Many engineering careers require some of these science degrees. Government jobs also require these degrees if you are working for energy department, EPA or something else.

good luck!

Peter’s Answer

Ty.....years ago I entered College with no idea what field I wanted to major in, much less a career path. For nearly two years I took a variety of classes. It was not until the last Quarter of my Sophomore Year that I took a Biology class from a very dynamic Professor. He made the subject interesting and fascinating. So my Junior Year I took a Molecular Biology/Biochemistry path and then graduated

After graduation, I worked in a Microbiology research lab for a few years. I realized this was not the path I wanted. So I went on to earn a masters Degree in Civil Engineering. I spent the next 35 years in the very rewarding and interesting Field of Water Resources.

The point is that you do not need to sweat right now over exactly what Field you choose for a career. Take a wide variety of courses early in your college career. Find out what interests you. I am living proof that even after college, you can still change course to find that special field of endeavor that you find interesting and fulfilling.

Rebecca’s Answer

If you are clueless, you could try any of these to narrow some of your options.

1. Take career and/or personality tests to know yourself better.
The tests could provide you an insight of what you might be actually interested in and what you would prefer to work on in the long term.

2. Talk to professionals about their daily work life.
What makes them keep on going everyday? What achievement they are most proud of? Imagine yourself living that work life. Do you like it?

Hope this helps!
