Zoology

Zoology

Zoology is the study of animals, covering both their environment and biology. Keep in mind the broad definition of animals – this ranges from the big guys you see in zoos to the weird things you never knew existed. You’re looking at definitely needing a bachelor’s degree in this field, ... Read more
Chemistry

Chemistry

Chemistry is the study of itty-bitty things called molecules and how they bond together to make, well, everything. Chemistry majors need a bachelor’s degree at least to do them any good, though a master’s is needed if they want to do any research.

Chemical Engineering

The thing about Chemical Engineering majors is they do a little bit of everything. They take all the math classes required of an engineering student. They add on all the science classes of a chemistry student. And then they are trained how to use the both together, creating scientif... Read more

Biochemistry and Biophysics

Biochemistry and Biophysics are pretty much what they sound like—the combination of Biology and Chemistry in one case and Physics in the other. That boils down to the study of Chemistry or Physics in living things. Sounds simple? It’s most definitely not. That’s why most Biochemistry... Read more
