In Reply to: "CARREER CHOICES IN HERPETOLOGY" & "HERPETOLOGY AS A MAJOR?" posted by @l@n on January 26, 1999 at 20:49:17:
One does not major in herpetology in college. Professional herpetologists major in biology. It is only after you have succesfully obtained a bachelor's degree that you can begin, as a postgraduate, to specialize in herpetology. To be successful as a biology major in college you should take all the math and science courses offered in your high school and study hard. In college you will probably have to compete with all those pre-med students! LOL
: I love herps, and I would love to work with herps for the rest of my life(I'm 16), literally. I currently breed Leopard Geckos, and I wanted to know some career choices in herpetology. Also, are there any colleges that have HERPETOLOGY as a major? Since I was in 7th grade, I knew I wanted to work with animals as a career, and study them in college. In the past year, I realized that the thing I've liked about animals my whole life is herps. I've been wanting to major in ZOOLOGY my whole life, and I know I can, but I want to know if there is anything else that would narrow it a little more towards REPTILES AND AMPHIBIANS. Is it possible to make a living off of breeding herps? Any help would be greatly appreciated...please respond, thanks!
