With a job in zoology do you actually get serious interaction with animals or only lab research?

I am a junior in high-school, but I am also dual enrolled to have my associates a year after graduating high-school. My interests are animals, the ocean, and soccer. I enjoy math mostly because I actually succeed at it. #marinebiology #accounting #zoology

Hi Cloey -

I am not a zoology major but I did go to Texas A&M who has one of the premier veterinarian colleges in the world. I know for a fact that students in this major get a lot of hands on time with animals, including both large and small animals such as livestock or domestic pets. A&M also has a top notch oceanography program and and their own ship at Texas A&M - Galveston that they use to conduct open ocean experiments etc. Being strong in math is a great strength for any career but certainly for those based in science!

Good luck,

Phil

Molly’s Answer

a BS in Zoology can do whatever they want - some career options include healthcare, animal behavior, biotechnology, wildlife rehabilitation, science writing, and forensic biology.

Graduates often specialize in a particular area of zoology during their studies and can therefore find careers geared toward their particular area of focus.

Because zoology is such a broad field, the types of jobs zoology majors can obtain are numerous and can include zookeeper, animal caretaker, veterinary technologist or technician, environmental consultant, technical writer, biology teacher, and research and laboratory technician.

I suggest narrowing down what you really want to do, and consider a minor major as well (if you think you can handle it) which will help give you more options.
