B.Sc. Bachelor of Science

7/12/2013 Courses

Bachelor of Science is an Undergraduate Academic
Degree which is awarded for a course or program in Science. The Bachelor of
Science degree is one of the most pursued Degrees in the world. Bachelor of
Science degree programs generally last 3 to 4 years depending upon the country.
In India, the duration of Bachelor of Science Degree spans over a period of 3
years. A person seeking the Science Degree needs to study 5 subjects. There are
limited number of combinations of subjects one can opt for depending upon the
availability of choices in various Institutes. It is popularly known as B.Sc. or
B.S. which is an abbreviated form of the Science Degree. Science degrees offer
very specified knowledge about certain subject areas, usually in one of the
three main science fields of Chemistry, Biology or Physics. Bachelor of Science
Degree Course is designed to develop graduates with the key practical skills and
interdisciplinary knowledge. The students are involved in completing pre-planned
lab work based on text books and reading and adapting to well known theories.
Students study an extensive range of courses and perform research in their
choice of field. Graduates, are qualified for employment opportunities in a wide
array of science and non-science industries. Whether a subject is considered a
science or an art can vary between universities. For example, an economics
degree may be given as a B.A.� by one university but as a B.Sc. by another.
Biology, Biochemistry, Maths, Physics, Chemistry, General science, Earth science
and Computer Science are almost universally considered to be sciences.

Eligibility for B.Sc.

from a recognised Education Board with Science stream can opt for Bachelor of

Who can
and Who should pursue Bachelor of Science Degree

Bachelor of Science Degree is not meant for
everybody. Bachelor of Science degree programs are meant for only those students
who have a strong, broad background in Mathematics and the Sciences. Science is
based on facts and logics so one needs to have a scientific temperament. One
needs to have knack of exploring various scientific processes, like why and how
of elements around us. Only pursue Science Degree if you are really good
Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Science students often spend time in the
laboratory and in the classroom. Sometimes we go for popular Career streams
because it is popular and everybody is seeking it. But if you are weak in
Science then you should not pursue it. Often we want to become scientist, doctor
etc. but we don't know what encompasses in the process involved. There are
Entrance tests etc. which keeps one on a tight leash. Then there is ranking,
number of seats for admission etc. One cannot afford to do the course leisurely.
Before pursuing the Science Degree one should weigh his/her options. An
Education or Career Councillor can be consulted in this matter if it is
confusing as to which stream one should choose. It is better to choose wisely
instead of repenting foolishly.

Advantages or Benefits of Bachelor of Science Degree

  • The Bachelor of Science stimulates curiosity and promotes scientific

  • Science is a global discipline. A degree in Science allows a person to
    work, study and travel all over the world.

  • The Bachelor of Science prepares graduates for increasingly inter- and
    multi-disciplinary science careers.

  • Wherever science graduates are employed, in cutting-edge research
    laboratories or in the applied sciences, their breadth of knowledge about
    the sciences and focused specialisation by way of a major will place them in
    the best position to excel in their chosen career.

  • There is a wide range of career opportunities, both nationally and

  • Students' who are working on cutting-edge research are the first one's
    to benefit from that research.

of Science Jobs

Bachelor of Science Degree Jobs are mostly
limited to scientific areas but the scenario is changing. With little training
and skill one can one can work in a wide variety of non-scientific areas as
well. Apart from research and government jobs, science graduates can also find
jobs in business, marketing, and technical writing. Nowadays, science graduates
are also recruited in the banking sector, to serve as customer service
