What classes must a high school student take to become a marine biologist?
I live in Ohio and want to become a marine biologist. Which classes should I take (or focus on) in high school? Which is the best college for me to go to? Lastly, what programs can I do to get me experience before college?
Here is a list of "best Marine Biology programs" from CollegeChoice.net - https://www.collegechoice.net/sciences/marine-biology/best-bachelors-degrees/. However, don't get too caught up in college rankings. Most employers are not going to care too much about what college you attended. When trying to choose a college, try to find one that "fits" with you, your goals and what you're looking for from the college experience best. Visit as many colleges as you can before making a decision. Of course, the quality of education is important, but the quality of education you get is not going to vary too wildly from one college to another. It is better to find somewhere that fits with you best than to just decide solely based on rankings on a website.
