Training School and College๐ŸŽ“

Florida International University:

I chose this college because of the location, I figured since the college was located in a city near the ocean it would be a good resource learning wise. Also, the school provides the degree needed to pursue marine biology. It is a public school in Miami, Florida. This is a university, not a tech school. The normal class size is twenty seven kids per teacher.

The text I read didn't have the information on what the setting was, four or two year college, and student to faculties ratio.


The average GPA needed is 3.7. Estimated score for ACT is 24-27. Lastly, the estimated score for SAT is 1100-1339.

About the Job๐Ÿ ๐ŸŸ๐Ÿฌ๐ŸŒด

Marine biology is the study of plants and animals that live in oceans, costal waters, and saltwater wetlands. Marine biologists study the function, structure, and life processes of plants and animals of the ocean. They learn about relationships between organisms. The conditions of this job would include being in the water, or in a lab depending on what you do.

The text I read did not explain the work places.

This is not a career I could see myself pursuing when I'm older. The pros of this job would include getting to work with animals and plants, work in water(depending on what you do), and learning knew things everyday. The cons of this occupation would be you need a lot of schooling to pursue the job and the job requires a lot of skills.
