Zoology is the study of the animal kingdom. Because zoology is such a broad field, there are many opportunities available.

Some positions you might consider include:

  • Lab assistant
  • Medical technician
  • Research associate
  • Zookeeper

A bachelor’s degree in a science field such as zoology or biology is required for many zoology positions, but experience may substitute for the degree depending on the industry.
