What type of college degree do most of your scientists have?

Posted on November 08 2012

Question submitted by George Washington Elementary School

There is not one type of degree that all our scientists have.  Some have bachelors degrees, some have masters degrees, and the chief scientist has a doctorate.  They come from all different kinds of science backgrounds such as biotechnology, environmental science and biology.  What has brought them out here to the North Pacific are their experiences during their college years that exposed them to ocean science.  Sea Education Association's undergraduate SEA Semester “semester abroad” programs have helped many students decide to pursue careers that involve ocean research.  Most of the crew onboard are alums of SEA Semester.
