Careers in Marine Science

Dolphin Trainer
Dolphin trainers need to know a lot about dolphins, especially how they behave, thus most of our trainers here at CMA have degrees in psychology along with furthered studies in biology.  A four-year bachelor’s degree is a good start, but experience in animal training really helps.  Many trainers start out by volunteering or interning at marine animal facilities, such as the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.  It's a job in demand, so be willing to relocate and work your way up.

Marine Animal Veterinarian
Becoming a veterinarian (or vet) can be a very rewarding career, but it is also very challenging and demanding. One must begin by pursuing a bachelor’s degree before continuing onto a professional school for another minimum four years classroom time. After completing your Doctor’s of Veterinary Medicine degree, relevant experience within the marine animal field is crucial. Through externships, volunteering and other work-related experiences in emergency, marine and exotic animal care.

Marine Biologist
Marine biologist often will have a four year bachelor’s degree in Marine Biology/Biology. During school, students will further their field experiences through volunteering and interning at schools, laboratories, museums and aquariums.  After graduation, they may also pursue a Master’s or PhD degree in their area of interest, such as marine mammals.
