Zoology students at Humboldt can take advantage of our well-developed vertebrate and invertebrate museums. Nearby coastlines, forests, and mountains offer opportunities for studying animals in their native habitats; we also house animals in on-campus quarters. Molecular biology facilities and electron microscopes are available for student use.
Students interested in marine life have use of Humboldt’s marine laboratory, located in nearby Trinidad, and the university’s research vessel, the Coral Sea.
Zoology graduates pursue such careers as: technical writer, zookeeper, environmental consultant, entomologist, herpetologist, mammalogist, health technician, animal nutritionist, laboratory technician, museum curator, science librarian.
We recommend that students who are interested in a major in zoology, take biology, chemistry, and physics (with labs, if possible) plus algebra, geometry, and trigonometry in high school.
