      There are many ways, you’ll have to do a degree in some related subject, but there are lots of kinds of scientists. There are ones that run medical tests for doctors and hospitals, people that work in industry making all kinds of things. There are lots of science jobs that don’t even do research, just making drugs and chemicals for companies requires lots of scientists. If you want to do research, you probably need to do at least a couple of degrees in that subject and then decide whether you want to stay in a university or work for a pharmaceutical or chemical company.
