Blue Hen Aquarist
Jonathan Dinman enrolled at UD in 2011 as a marine science major. He was in the program’s first graduating class of students in 2015 and now works with ocean creatures and environments every day as an aquarist at Shedd Aquarium in Chicago. Dinman said his time at UD helped shape his future as an aquarist as it provided opportunities to learn research and laboratory skills, participate in a study abroad to New Zealand, and hear from professionals in the marine science field, which exposed him to careers outside of academia.
