Hi Gilian,


Wildlife Biology focuses in on the relationship between animals and the natural resources that support their survival. Some of the inter-related aspects that one would study in a Zoology & Wildlife Program are Chemistry, Physics, Advanced Mathematics, Statistics, although it may also help to have good writing and communication skills for writing up reports. Once you have your Degree in Zoology & Wildlife, some of the potential opportunities for employment include doing laboratory research, observing wildlife, working in colleges or universities as teachers, working in zoos, or even with governments to assist in areas of conservation and wildlife management and nature.


In the link below you can find colleges that offer zoology courses:

Good Luck!

<span style="background-color: transparent;">Collegeboard.org is a great resource for this! I poured through the pages of universities all over the U.S. when I was a senior in high school. Collegeboard was my go-to site! They put all of the information in one place and it is very easy to use. They even have various filters you can apply to see only colleges that have programs you are interested. To determine academic rigor, look at the admissions requirements, G.P.A. of past admitted applicants, SAT/ACT scores, class rank etc. This will give you an idea of what scores and grades you need to be accepted. However, don't be discouraged your application will be reviewed based on the full picture! College-board will help you get an idea of what is most important to the specific school you are applying to.</span>



This professional recommends the following next steps:

  • <span style="background-color: transparent;">Chat with your Guidance Counselor</span>
  • <span style="background-color: transparent;">Create a Collegeboard.org account</span>
  • <span style="background-color: transparent;">Start using CollegeBoard as a resource to look up schools.</span>
