Q&A with Jassy’s Sister – What can you do with a science degree?
My sister has kindly lent me her high school self to ask some questions high school students might have about Science and university. Awesome!
Q: What can you do with a science degree?
Okay now, this is just a sneaky question masquerading as a “what are you going to do after you graduate?” type deal. I’ve been getting this question from a lot of people…and my answer changes depending on how I feel at that particular moment.
A) Medical school (I’ve applied to UOttawa and McGill)
B) Pharmacy school (Dalhousie/UofT/UBC/Waterloo/UofA)
C) Graduate school (McGill)
Yah…not fun applying to all of those. Honours thesis projects are, however, excellent because they not only give you research experience, but also references. Every single one of the above schools asks for at least 2; some even state that they want a professor as your reference. So keep an eye out for those. At the present moment I prefer pharmacy. (I’m limited to 500 words here so I’ll tell you about it in the next post!)
Don’t get the wrong idea though; getting a Science degree doesn’t mean you have to take more school afterwards!

There are a lot of things you can do with a science degree!
Hope that helps,
