You can probably go into medical research if you are interested. I hear a lot of corporate companies are hiring neuroscience majors as well.

Question by Rachel: PhD vs. Masters in Neuroscience?
I am a 3rd year undergraduate student double majoring in Neuroscience and Psychology with a Biology minor. I am interested in going on to graduate school in the field of Neuroscience. Is it worth it to get the PhD or just get a Masters degree? Many jobs require only a Masters, but any graduate student in the schools I am interested in receive a full scholarship plus a decent stipend. I feel like I might as well go for the PhD. isn’t very helpful when looking for jobs in this field. I want to do research! Is this a high demand area?

You need to understand that degrees in any subject do not necessarily translate into a specific job. So you are not going to see a listing on Monster for a Neuroscientist.

Most people pursue a PhD because they want to do research and secondly teach at a post-secondary institution. If you’re interested in this then go for the PhD. Especially if you want to be the person in charge, the big boss, the head honcho.

Question by Beth: Forensic Science degree program, with Masters in Forensic Psychology?
Since I do not have a B.S. degree in Criminal Justice (my B.S. degree is in Business) I am hoping a few people with experience in teaching Criminal Justice at the undergraduate or graduate level can help me.

I desire to go into Forensic Psychology at the Masters level. I may need to take a few lower level classes in psychology since I’ve been a business major for the last 7 years.

However, If I go into Forensic Science at the PhD level, what will I need to do (as in classes) to better prepare myself (after I attain my Masters)? I know that the psychology would help me.

Would a certain class in math help, perhaps calculus? Would taking physics or chemistry be a requirement to obtain a undergraduate degree in Forensic Science?

(If physics or chemistry is requirement at the undergraduate level, I better take it now).

My mind works in details and I know that I know that I know that I want to do investigative work. I analyze like crazy. Any information would help greatly.
Tink, thanks so much. Randy C, you put a lot of time in for those degrees. I did find out that,

“People interested in careers as science technicians (such as forensic scientists) should [take/have] a background in applied chemistry, physics, and math is vital.” Got this from

I guess I better take a few classes in chemistry and physics. I do not want to wait to take these later. The good thing about this is

“Jobs for forensic science technicians are expected to increase much faster than the average.” from

If you want to do forensic psych you better go for a PhD.
A masters will get you nothing. Its the consolation prize for not kjumping for the ring…and people in the field know that its practically worthless.

Question by John: if i do a double degree could i do a masters in either?
I want to do a double degree – computer science (majoring software systems) and science (majoring in physics). If i decided i wanted to pursue science for example, could i do a master of science majoring in physics?

You’ve already asked this question and had it answered here:;_ylt=ApQn_uJlLi0l425J3UncPAnsy6IX;_ylv=3?qid=20120810091055AATv0od

If you want to do a Physics Masters program, then having a Physics undergrad major is what you need, regardless of whether it’s part of a double major, and vice versa.

Question by L A: At the masters level, what is the best route of study for the Science of Consciousness?
I already have a bachelors in chemistry, and am interested in the study of consciousness. Any suggestions?? Specific Programs??

Best answer:

Answer by Jt
Science of Consciousness seems more of a Physics field. As some people believe consciousness arrives from the quantum world, they call it ‘quantum consciousness.’ I’d like to suggest getting a degree in Theoretical Physics rather than chemistry if you’d like to study ‘indirectly’ consciousness.

Question by Steven TJ: Where can I study a combined Masters’ Degree in Actuarial Science and Theoretical Physics?
Is there such a degree?

Which College/University offers it?

Best answer:

Answer by eri
You can’t; no college offers a degree like that. The two fields are not even distantly related, and have very different pre-requisite coursework demands. You can do the masters separately, but since again, they aren’t related, there’s no point in having both since you wouldn’t need both for a job. And ‘theoretical physics’ is a way of approaching physics, not a field of physics, so most schools would just call it a masters in physics. You won’t be doing much theory (not new theory, anyway) at the masters level.

Question by : Masters in Physics, science undergrad?
I’m an undergraduate student with a major in science. I’m wondering if it’s possible for me to apply and be accepted into a masters program for Physics even though my undergrad isn’t physics. I do have to take quite a lot of math and some physics for my science major, but I’m not sure if that would help.

Best answer:

Answer by Arbitrary Person
Look up the requirements of physics programs. Often times, you need a significant number of courses in physics, but your undergrad degree doesn’t have to be physics. If you have time, change your major now.
