How To Become A Marine Biologist
Marine biology is a branch of science that studies the living organisms that live in saltwater environments. Marine biologists are specially trained scientists who study the habitations and adaptations of a variety of organisms from whales to microscopic phytoplankton. Marine biologists need at least a bachelor degree for entry-level positions, but many positions require master or doctorate degrees in biology, marine science, biochemistry, zoology, or other related field. Marine biologists typically take many courses in biology, chemistry, zoology, mathematics, and physics. Employment of all biological scientists (including marine biologists) is expected to grow about as fast as average for all professions, increasing 9% from 2006 to 2016. Biotechnological research and development will drive job growth.
