What can you do with a Bachelors of Science degree ?

Asked by ISUTF224 (35points) October 17th, 2010

For a long time I was planning on getting a BS degree and then going to Physical Therapy school to get my DPT. More recently I decided I don’t want to get a DPT. What can you do with a BS degree that doesn’t involve graduate school education but still lends a solid income?

Professional Demand for the Bachelor of Science (BS) Degree

While many science careers require post-graduate training, the Bachelor of Science (BS) degree enables graduates to work as science technicians. Since the minimal education to be a science technician is an associate’s degree, the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) employee enjoys a competitive advantage.

Bachelor of Science (BS) Degree Salary and Growth

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics,, forensic science technicians earned an average of $21.16 hourly in 2004. Demand for science technicians with the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree is projected to grow at average rates. However, the Bachelor of Science working in nursing, IT, nuclear and biomedical fields will see growth far above average in many cases.”
