I Want To Be A Zoologist!

The word Zoology comes from the Greek word meaning “animal” and “knowledge.” Zoologists study the behavior, physiology, classification and distribution of animals, whether they are living or extinct. They usually are named for the animal group that they study. Ornithologists study birds, mammologists study mammals, herpetologists study reptiles and ichthyologists study fish!

Important subjects related to zoology include biology, physics, chemistry, English, algebra, calculus and statistics. A bachelor’s degree from college in zoology is a minimum requirement for entry level jobs while further qualifications are usually required for higher level research jobs.
