What are the possibilities with a Marine Biology and/or Ecology degrees?

I am going to school in Hawaii in order to pursue a Marine Biology degree and I am considering switching to an Ecology degree because I really enjoy Ecology. #career-path #marine-biology #ecologist

The most exciting part of research to me is going out in the field and working with animals and in the environment, but I'm concerned that in my career I'll get stuck analyzing data and not doing field work. Any advice?

I'm going into Ecology & Environmental Biology and I love working with animals on the field and studying animal cognition in the wild or at a sanctuary. However, it seems to me that professionals in biology often spend their time analyzing data in the lab or writing grants, which I would fine with doing some of, but I really want my focal point to be working with my actual subjects. I want to know if this is possible or if I'm being too idealistic. #biology #research #higher-education #ecology #researcher #animal-work #ecologist #field-work

Do I have to have chemistry for a medical/health physicist or human ecologist job?

I would very much like to become either a human ecologist or a medical/health physicist. I am taking physics and biology but I cannot take chemistry. It is super challenging for me for some reason but I excel in physics and biology. I would just like to know if it is absolutely necessary to have chemistry for either of these careers if I have biology and physics or are they just unattainable career goals without chemistry. #medicine #physics #ecologist #physicist
