Science is one of the ancient and most important academic disciplines, which covers a broad range of subjects. It is also one of the fundamental parts of the term STEM i.e. science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. 

Science as a subject is all about observation, experimentation, accumulation of factual information, and the formulation of theories to explain how physical, chemical, atomic, and subatomic systems behave. The science ranges from anthropology, archaeology, paleontology, geology, physics, chemistry, biology, virology to astronomy and astrophysics. It is a broad discipline that incorporates so many other subjects in it. 

Human curiosity and necessity gave birth to science. Science is everywhere. Science is one of the most important subjects students study because it gives them the critical thinking skills they need in every subject. 

If you want to contribute to the benefits of mankind by working in the advancement of science and obtain a successful career, a research-oriented science degree at a college or university will be useful to fulfill your dream.
