Can someone like me with BA in Zoology and Anthropology work as a DA or BA? 

Thanks for taking this post. I have a science back ground, though not a BS per say.  I am interested starting out as a Data Analyst, unfortunately I can exactly afford to pay for any more college, can I go to any chapter meeting in my hometown? Do you have any suggestions on what someone like me can do? Thank you for your time.

Re: Can someone like me with BA in Zoology and Anthropology work as a DA or BA? 

First of all: yes - there is no reason why your degree should prevent you from becoming a business analyst in the future.  Also - there is not need for you pursue another college degree.  You could always decide to pursue a masters degree at a later time.

The reality though is that you don't have any experience nor education in business analysis. Therefore, I would suggest that you get started but investing in a good introductory course in business analysis (ideally instructor lead).  This will help you not only gain a good understanding of the profession but will also provide you with the opportunity to discuss more details with the instructor and fellow students.

Best of luck in your future endeavors!
