Get Set: Finding a School
Questions to ask while looking at colleges:
- Does the college have the program I need to prepare for my zoological career?
- Is there a zoological park, animal shelter, veterinarian clinic, or pet store I can
volunteer or work at while I attend school?
- Am I willing to move to take advantage of the educational and career opportunities this
school offers ?
- How many people that graduate from the program find jobs in animal-related careers?
- Are there internships available for working with animals?
- Who is teaching the courses, graduate students or professors? How much time do profes
sors have to work with me?
- What experience do the professors have working with animals?
- With the degree program I choose, what are some other career options if I can't find a
job working with animals, or decide that I'm no longer interested in working with animals?
