Is pursuing a science degree hard?

I am getting ready to buckle up for university in September, but I have no idea what major I should go into.
I've been doing research for quite awhile, and nothing seems to be worth the time and energy of going to school. A Humanities major has no marketability. Almost everyone is going for a business degree or teaching degree, and these are more and more losing demand. Social Sciences interest me, but again.. Not very useful in the job market.
There is one degree in Earth and Ocean Sciences at my school which very much interests me, but I am unsure about whether I could handle the requirements. I took almost zero science courses in highschool, and my first year of studies would be getting my math 12 chem 12 and possibly bio 12.
There is a calculus requirement that also makes me very uneasy to commit, I took math 12 in highschool and evened a "C-" although I was never in class and lacked motivation at that phase in my life.
I don't know, has anyone here pursued a science degree? How difficult did you find it? Would you say it's possible with motivation hard work alone?
any input would be very appreciated
