1. Career * I have decided to become a marine biologist after leaving from Magruder High School and graduating from college. A marine biologist studies the marine ecosystem and aquatic life. A marine biologist helps understand the balance between humanity and the oceans. Marine biologists also frequently explore the deep depths of the oceans and waterways we live in, discovering new plant and aquatic species. * The prospects of getting a job as a marine biologist are very competitive unless a very specific field is chosen. In the general field of marine biology the job growth has shown little growth or has completely stagnated while in the specialized course of fishery science the job creation has sky rocketed as we deplete our oceans of fish. * Marine biologists must have a 4 year degree in biology from an accredited university. Marine biologists will usually have degrees from several different backgrounds but all pertain or are related to the study of life and animals. It is very regular for a marine biologist to continue on in their education and obtain a master’s degree in a study relating to or pertaining to the study of life or animals. * Since marine biology is usually focused more on coastal areas of the world, the average pay is hard to determine for a marine biologist. A marine biologist straight out of college has been recorded of having an average starting pay of anywhere from 40000-45000 USD per year. While a marine biologist who has been in the field for over a decade can make in excess of 120000 USD. In the state of Maryland marine biologists are paid about 30000 USD per year starting and can exceed 75000 USD per year. 2. College/ Other Training * I have decided to go to Montgomery College for the first 2 years and then transfer to the University of Florida, Miami for the final two years. * I will get a degree in Biology which will take me 4 years. I will then pursue a masters in either Oceanography or Fishery Sciences

    I have a deep interest in the ocean and marine life, which was fostered when my family and I moved to the Pacific Coast. This interest grew further after I went on a backstage tour to the aquarium at the Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo. Due to this continuous exposure to the ocean and the creatures that live there, I am focusing my education around my interest in marine life. It's for this reason that I’m majoring in Marine Biology with a minor in Chemistry. With this education, my goal is to become an Aquarist, and build my way up to becoming an ocean or aquarium diver. As a diver, I want to have the opportunity to study coral reefs, and create and implement conservation plans. In addition, I want to study sea turtles and ways to conserve their declining…

    No matter what science oriented profession one chooses to pursue, education is the undisputed key to success and the field of marine biology is no exception. While a bachelor's degree qualifies you for an entry level position, it is most likely insufficient if you have your sights set on a career involving independent research or field work. The majority of people working within the field of marine biology with only a bachelor's degree, are for the most part relegated to doing lab research and charting test results. A post graduate degree, either a master's degree or a Ph.D., is necessary for anyone aspiring to make a name for themself within the field or significantly increase the probability of career advancement. While an advance degree is necessary for the higher paying positions, the majority of jobs within the profession only require a bachelor's degree and an advance degree is no guarantee of advancement or even employment. Given the extensive educational requirements, which are a significant investment of time and money without being a guarantee of employment within the field, this paper will offer some thoughts to consider in order to determine which degree is appropriate to pursue and some suggestions that may increase a new graduate's desirability when attempting to enter the field.…

    Transition aA marine biologist requires many classes in high school and college that consist of math, science, and computer science classes. Since research is an important aspect in marine biology taking an English class would help me learn how to conduct research. To be a top marine biologist I would need to get a doctoral degree.( "Marine Biologists ") Overall both careers deal with science, but they differ in the type of science. They also differ in the amount of school time. For marine biology I would have to go to school longer to get my doctoral degree where as a crime scene technician I wouldn’t have to go to school as long because I only need my masters degree. An important requirement for any job is to be able to have the right job qualities. If I was to become a crime scene technician I would need to have good communication skills so that I would be able to document the crime scene clearly. Another key quality I would need to have is paying attention to the littlest detail. If I was to miss any small detail it would…
