Future marine biologists: Classes you NEED to take


People interested in becoming marine biologists often ask me what classes they need to take to pursue this career. But the path to marine biology as a profession is far from ‘one size fits all’.

In addition to the classes I mention in the video, I would also suggest taking some general marine science classes, like oceanography, to get a better sense for the unique properties of the marine environment. Don’t forget — you can become a marine biologist whether or not you take the classes I mention. The key to becoming a successful scientist in any field is staying true to your own interests, as they develop.

I launched a campaign in 2015 to share the exhilarating process and invaluable products of science with the masses. To support my campaign, subscribe:
