Types of Science Degrees Available Online and On-Campus

As the options have continued to expand in the world of online education, the number of people choosing to earn a degree online has risen. Science is no exception. Online education offers students the flexibility to attend classes around their own schedule, which often includes working a full-time job.

Still, whether online or on-campus, numerous types of science degrees and applied science programs are available. Here are several of the areas in which you can earn a science degree.

Agriculture and Food Scientists

Agriculture and food scientists focus their efforts on making sure that the agricultural industry is productive and safe in what it produces. They oversee research into field crops and farm animals, as well as develop methods of improving the quantity and quality of agricultural products. Those who enter this branch of science often specialize in particular areas, such as animals, soil and plants or the underlying nutrition and composition of food.

Environmental Scientists and Specialists

Environmental scientists and specialists focus on applying their knowledge about the natural world to understanding how human beings can be better stewards of the planet. This can translate into a number of different jobs, from the environmental scientist who works with the federal government to set national environmental standards to the one working with businesses to deal with environmental issues before they become worse (such as those who inspect pipelines in the energy industry). As knowledge of the environment continues to become more detailed and awareness of environmental concerns grow, the need for scientists in this speciality is expected to grow, as well.

Health Scientists

Health scientists conduct research with the goal of finding ways to cure illnesses and disease and improve human health. Using clinical trials and research in laboratories, health scientists develop drugs and medical methods and procedures that lead to better human health. They work primarily in laboratories, often associated with universities. Some also work with the government to develop improved health safety standards.

Chemists and Materials Scientists

Working in laboratories, chemists and materials scientists study the effects of substances -- structure, composition and reactions. They then use this information to design better, more useful and safer products. These often involve very complex research and working on a team. Chemists must have not only the ability to design tests that reveal aspects of substances, but also be able to convey those findings to those outside their field through technical reports.
