Possible to study a degree in dinosaurs?

The question is in the title.

Would it be possible to study dinosaurs for a degree?
If so, what would the degree be called? Would it be dinosaurology or something like that?

Not a troll!

I was just curious. I graduated in Accounting and Finance last year.

I'm not interested in studying about dinosaurs myself, I was just curious about whether it was possible :p:

Aye I think they do paleobiology and paleontology or something. As far as I know though no university offers paleontology on it's own.

Oh right ;p. I don't know if you actually study 'dinosaurs' in paleontology, I think it's like all extinct species maybe? (Including humans). But yeah, it's mainly about fossils and stuff.

Lol
I'm not doing a degree in it, but the geology class I took was mostly paleontology. That Bristol course looked like what the geology students interested in paleontology take, and you would have to study physical geology anyways.
Nothing wrong with wanting to study dinosaur history. That’s what my daughter wants to do at uni. And we are living in the golden age of dinosaurs. Dino remains are being found all over the world currently (can’t imagine why they weren’t found before…!) and scientists are learning more about our evolution faster than ever before. A good subject!!!!!

This thread’s over 12 years old, almost as ancient as the dinos your daughter wants to study.
