In Reply to: Re: are there any schools that offer degrees, or teach herptalogy....thanks.....np posted by terry cox on February 17, 2000 at 04:57:39:

are usually associated with Universities. (I assume this conversation is in its infancy). The ones I know usually get a bachelors in something like biology or chemistry, etc., and then go on to something a little more specific. I started out leaning towards oceanography, ended up not even getting a degree in science, and went back to school later and got a masters in science for teachers which was mostly ecology courses. I have a nephew who's got a better handle on things and is getting a bachelor's in environmental management studies. However, I'm not a professional herpetologist. I think most get fairly narrowed down at the masters level then go on to a PhD somewhere with a school that is good for their special interest. You would want to know who is out there that is doing research in the area you want to specialize in. Good luck, TC.
