Marine Biology Degree
Statistics say that the average college student (not all) changes their major 8 times. Apparently I'm average because I've had a hard time knowing where I'm going. I've always been very passionate about agriculture, having spent my childhood raising livestock and actively involved in FFA and 4-H programs. I always thought I wanted to be an Agriculture Science teacher, but I am suddenly not too crazy about it. My passion for certain things has made me consider going into law school and ultimately becoming a lobbyist. I've also wanted to be an occupational therapist, entrepreneur, the list goes on and on. But I'm running out of basics to take and I have to pick something soon. My family insists I look into marine biology, so that is what I'm doing. I've read that marine biology is a graduate degree and I would have to get a biology degree first and then move to a school on the coast for the marine biology program.
So here are some of my questions:
What are my options in the field of marine biology? What jobs are there to be had? What limitations are there? Any marine biologists out there with any advice?
Thanks for reading my novel and thanks for the advice in advance!
