I think that would depend entirely on what it was you wanted to do for a
career. What I mean is that there are many colleges and universities that
have sources in marine science and marine mammal biology. Some have
graduate courses as well, however the marine mammal field has become highly
specialized and so it is quite likely that you would want training and
courses in a specialized field, as well as some general marine biology.
Although I am probably not the best example, I did my undergraduate work
at a small school in southern Pennsylvania...good biology...no whales for
The Society of Marine Mammology has a good career guide on the web (there
is a link to it through WhaleNet) called "Strategies for pursuing a career
in marine mammal science". My advise would be to study up on the work that
is going on (by subscribing to the MARMAM listserv and becoming a member of
the Society of Marine Mammaology, or the International Marine Animal
trainers Association, or the International Association of Aquatic Animal
Medicine) and see who is doing work that interests you. That might help
you narrow your search a bit.

I was wondering if you know of any good universities for a career in marine
mammal biology. Thank you very much for your time.
