You would have to check with the universities you are considering attending to get specific requirements, but typically the answer is yes.
You can usually get a master's degree in a field that does not match your bachelor's degree. You will most likely have more core classes that you will have to take to make up for the missing prerequisites, but most universities allow this sort of thing.

It is possible to get a MSc Degree with an undergraduate degree in a different area.

But there may be some serious issues to deal with.

What branch of science do you plan to study, and why?  What is your experience in this area?

You probably can not study physics or chemistry at the graduate level with out a strong background in the basics.  You might be okay if you took elective science courses as an undergrad, or if you have relevant work experience.

Many grad schools will require the GRE test.  You should take a look at one and see how you might fare.

You can probably find a diploma mill that will give you any degree you want for a little effort and  lot of cash.  But that is not likely to provide any long term benefit.

i did a BSc in chemistry followed 10 years later by a MSc in computer science.

i had to do all the undergrad courses prerequisite to the 1st year courses for MSc degree in computer science, but NOT the prerequisites to those courses.

i was also required to maintain a B average for the undergrad courses.
