Career Opportunities

In terms of the different jobs you can do, military sciences are pretty broad. You will probably choose to take either the theoretical route or the technical route, depending on what floats your boat/submarine/destroyer/aircraft carrier. If you want to get into the theory side of things, you will effectively be working in what's known as military intelligence . Yep, that's right you might be doing a similar job to that of Neil Patrick Harris in Starship Troopers. You could look into becoming a military theorist or researcher, where you d be focusing your efforts on military tactics, strategies and administration. This is all about being a logical thinker! Alternatively, you could be working as an engineer or laboratory technician. You might be designing weapons, military vehicles, radar systems, handheld communication devices and other military paraphernalia. There's also a huge educational branch of military sciences, which a lot of people choose to get into. Everyone has to learn their knowledge from somewhere and unfortunately watching hours and hours of Dad's Army or M*A*S*H can only do so much. If you have a passion for passing your knowledge on to other people, you could seek work as a military science instructor. These guys work for universities or army training academies and educate the new crop of military scientists and officers.
