Hi Matt

Its hard for me to say what you should take while you're at Harding. You
absolutely need to be able to write well and you need very good math
skills in algebra and statistics. I am not a marine biologist. I am a
physical oceanographer (animal bioacoustics) and marine mammalogist. As
far as college goes, my opinion is that you should NOT major in marine
anything as an undergrad. Yous should major in biology and then go to
grad school for marine biology.

Hi. I am a sophomore at Harding Academy in Arkansas. I was wondering what
corses I should take my Junior and Senior year here. Also what classes
should I take in collage that would best qualify me to be a Marine
