This emphasis readies you for a career teaching biology at the secondary school level. Pairing this DPI-approved major with a secondary education minor will expand your teaching horizons. You’ll study microbiology, learning about the structure and function of living things at the molecular level, as well as genetics and cellular biology. Next, you'll move on to study comparative vertebrate zoology, where you’ll explore the evolution and diversity of structure and function in vertebrate systems.
Finally, your coursework will examine organismal physiology and the biological adaptations plants and animals undergo to cope with their environments. You can also select from additional courses such as human physiology, cell biology, aquatic biology or conversation biology.
