Secondary Education

Majoring in biology and secondary education readies you for a career teaching biology at the middle and high school level. Pairing this major with a secondary education major will expand your teaching horizons as you complete the requirements for a science license.

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.
