There are few occupations more important than educating today’s youth. As a teacher in middle school or high school, you will have the opportunity to contribute to society by shaping adolescent minds. The BS in Education, Secondary Education with a Concentration in Biology, prepares you to work with children from seventh through twelfth grade in public, private, and alternative school systems, engaging their minds in science.
