When it comes to higher education, there are many programs to choose from. Indeed, it is a career building choice that will shape your future. Therefore, one should be quite prudent about the decision.

Following what interests you is the best way to go about gaining education, as you will have less trouble working hard for something you love. As a result, excelling in your chosen field will become easier and more fulfilling. There are several factors that affect the decision of choosing a field in university.

However, as the choice will impact your future, it is important to keep in mind the scope of your chosen field of study.

Science is a field that has a never-ending scope. Pursuing science at university level could be one of the best decisions you ever make.

Here are five reasons you should consider studying science at university:

  1. Enhanced Understanding of the World

Science is a blessing for the curious mind that is often left wondering about how the world works. Studying science at a higher level in university will help you to understand the scientific theories and reasons behind everything you come across in this world. Assignments will be related to you experimenting and discovering the secrets behind everything, and thinking of possible solutions to problems that other experts have given up on.

  1. Science Has Continuous Growth

The economy suffers from periods of recession leading to many risks and setbacks for those who depend on it to thrive. Science has no such issue, experiencing growth in every subsector in a positive direction. Developments and improvements in the scientific field are nearly always for the better and make lives easier even in times of despair. While you may have heard that the government cuts research funds during a recession, it is actually the other way round. Economic emergencies have always resulted in a boost in innovation and R&D.

  1. Science Makes You Smarter

Unlike other educational genres, science challenges your mind in many ways. It forces you to think outside the box, find answers that aren’t already there and think of innovative notions. This enhances your mind’s ability to analyse and innovate, making you quicker and smarter. No wonder some of the smartest minds in human history have been scientists.

  1. Science Leads To a Diverse Range Of Occupations

Following most degrees reduces the possibilities when the time comes to step out into the world and look for a job. Science, however, has endless job opportunities. You can go into research, work as a laboratorian, or become a doctor, engineer, environmentalist etc.

  1. You Can Become a Doctor

Becoming a PhD is one of the proudest moments of a person’s life. This is because it involves a lot of effort and consumes a lot of time. Getting a PhD gives you the additional benefit of adding the ‘Dr.’ title to your name. Imagine how good it would be to say or write Dr. Robert Ryan Dundee as your name. It is quite impressive no matter where you go. Becoming a PhD in science gives you recognition that lasts a lifetime.

Science calls out to you and invites you to explore the endless possibilities and secrets hidden in this universe. Deciding to take it up when starting university will open up doors to endless opportunities.

It is a decision you won’t regret!
