    So say you really like chemsitry and/or physics. What do you do with a degree in them? Besides do secret experiments for the government that is.

    :P

    Here's my problem...

    I don't want to develop drugs because I believe are bodies can take care of themselves. I don't want to make life extending stuff because I believe we die for a reason. I don't want to work in warfare stuff because I don't want to kill people. I can't think of any company I would want to work for. I just am interested in it because... I don't know... it's just cool. I mean, can you get paid to just do what you want in chemistry? I'm gonna get some degree and then go work at a grocery store or somethin... I am so lost right now. Maybe I'll go teach language.

    Oh and my base on Earth is in the U.S.

    The oil industry? - COnservation? NASA? Agriculture? Vetinary?
    Industry - plastics?

    Physics - General engineering, civil engineering, Mechanical engineering, electrical/electronic engineerig -

    Look through the job ads, get an idea of the types of jobs, - look at pre-requisites for positions, phone employers tell them you want to work in their industry & and ask about jobs/quals.

    In the UK 'Chartered CHemical Engineer is a high paid one - Do as you please?? - not for the first 20 years and then only if you are at the top - 'lazy' won't get you there....

    Alright, thatnks for the advise. I still have no idea what I'm going to do though. Plus I'm probably not getting a high degree in chemistry, just an AS degree with lots of chemsitry in it. Maybe more if I transfer but probably not a focus... I was just curious.

    There is always the possibility of becoming a professor in it.. As an academic, on one side you'll be doing research in whatever you can find funding for, and on the other side, you'll be teaching students.

    And, teaching students can be as deep as you want it to be. Inspiring students can be quite interesting, methinks.

    But then again, it's not easy, it takes work and more than that - talent.

    Ya, I have considered teaching just because my teachers are such inspiration to me. For some reason it just doesn't fit though.... I don't know.
