Hi Neha,

Thank you for choosing to be your guide in taking the next step leading you to a successful career.
Wish you all the very best for your final semester and congratulations on being a bright student too.
Here I would like to tell you that the choice of masters is a personal choice, since at this stage, since you are a graduate, you develop a sense of maturity and are also analytic and can reason out based on your potentials.
At the same time a masters degree is a way of strengthening the base of a particular subject at the graduate level.
Hence a masters program must be chosen based on your specialization at the graduate level.
Since you are a Science graduate, I can only lists down some of the general M.Sc options, that a Science graduate can follow:

As you will notice, there are a lot of masters opportunity.

It would completely depend on where exactly your interests lies in.
At the same time, it is generally assumed that after an M.Sc, majorly students opt for a teaching career.
But it is definitely a personal choice. But majorly an M.Sc degree makes you eligible in the Research field.
As you can see above, the specializations mentioned are mainly research oriented. It is only upto you, which area would you like to opt for, a research oriented career or becoming a professor.
In case if you could mention your B.Sc specilaization and at the same time, your line of interests, would be able to guide you better.
Till that time, after your exams, do ponder on the lists given and write back, if you require anymore clarification.
Wish you good luck............

Dear Aspirant,

Thanks for approaching us at!

Good to have your frank opinion.

MSc is the most appropriate course for you. Please remove the great misconception that doing MSc can lead to only teaching jobs. MSc is a very respected qualification and if you choose the specialisation carefully, I do not see any reason that you will repent in your career.

You have not mentioned in what are you doing your BSc: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, etc? Based on that you can get MSc entry for specialisation.

Best wishes,

Dr. Anand Wadadekar
