Degree Level

Biology is the study of life and the study of how that life is relevant to our everyday existence. Teaching is more than a job, it is a calling. Today’s teachers are part of a professional community that promotes lifelong learning, community engagement, and empowerment. A degree in biology education prepares the student to lead a biology classroom at the middle and high school levels in a way that sets pupils up to enjoy their curriculum, and seek more scientific knowledge.  This major is perfect for those who want to teach, and have a passion for biology and the other sciences.
