I have always wanted to become marine biologist.. How do I do it? and When do I start?
I found this website that might help you:
We are ourselves not Academic advisors. But the way to go to become
a marine biologist is to find a college with a strong biology or
chemistry program. You should major in Biology or Chemistry as an
undergraduate, maybe doing your undergraduate research in marine
biology. Then, you can apply to go to graduate school and earn a
Masters or PhD in Marine Biology, so that you can find a job in that
I would suggest talking to your school counselor to find the best route for you, though.
From my memory of marine biologists in San Diego around 1975,
majoring in biology would be a better preparation than majoring in
chemistry. Maybe things have changed.
