Marine Biology Level 3 Course

Marine Biology Level 3 Course

This Level 3 home study course in Marine Biology aims to give a comprehensive grounding in the fascinating subject of life in the sea. This course provides a complete foundation in the subject area for those wishing to pursue a career in Marine Biology or for those wishing to undertake graduate studies in the field of Marine Biology.

What is a Marine Biologist?

Some marine biologists work in aquariums to help keep fish populations healthy and comfortable in a confined space. They may care for injured large fish and run a relocation program. They also may supervise or participate in developing educational materials for visitors to an aquarium. In the field, observations help a marine biologist learn how to care for fish of different species and also what material is vital for others to know.

Since frequently a marine biologist works in the field or more accurately, the ocean, most have to be adept swimmers and divers. This means in addition to college education, a marine biologist usually holds a certificate in scuba diving. Source - Wisegeek.com

Zoology Level 3 Course

This Level 3 home study course is aimed at providing a thorough introduction to the subject of Zoology. It will particularly appeal to those who are currently working in the subject and would like to enhance their knowledge or interested in the animal world but would like more scientific depth that that provided in popular media. It will particularly appeal to those wishing to study Zoology or other sciences at a higher level in the future.Zoology is a branch of biology that focuses on the study of animals. Within this branch, people may also specialise and study certain forms of animals. For example a person working in zoology might study fish biology and work as an ichthyologist. Alternately, a zoologist could specialise in the study of mammals and be called a mammalogist.

The discipline of zoology dates to the Ancient Greeks. In fact our primary system of classifying animals is largely based on Aristotle’s work, though he made numerous classification errors. Early zoologists who followed Aristotle include many unknown collectors of animals who attempted to understand animals, or who were merely fascinated by the animal kingdom.
