4 | Advice for students
What advice would you give a student who is interested in studying the Great Lakes?
As for college, a student can persue a wide variety of degrees, including Civil Engineering, Hydrology, Biology, Meteorology, Oceanography, Chemistry, Atmospheric Sciences, and Water Resources Policy.
The key to preparing for a career on the Great Lakes is to take science and math courses while in high school! GLERL also has tours and open houses so students can see what the Great Lakes researchers do. A student who is especially focused can apply for our summer internship program; it's a good way for a student to determine if he or she really likes this kind of work.Great advice for students!

We consider this fun! It's not only work, but an avocation that we all really enjoy. That's one of the things that we really try to get across to students -- that science is really fun!
