You love the mysteries of life. Whether it’s the way that different species work together to create the marvel of a unique ecosystem, or the tiny miscroscopics of life that excite your imagination, fuel your curiosity, and instill a sense of wonder. Either way, you want to share this wonder with the next generation of future scientists. Combine the best of our Biology major with best of Teacher Education. You’ll follow your Biology interests into the lab or the field where you’ll use modern techniques in challenging processes with direct faculty mentorship in a highly collaborative department.
 
Additionally, you’ll learn the skills to be successful in teaching middle and high school-aged students the wonders of science. Through Teacher Education courses and field work, you’ll be on track for licensing to teach 7-12 grade science in Colorado’s public schools. This is a rigorous program and is best completed by starting early in your college career. Talk with advisors in Teacher Education and Biology soon to see if this is a good fit for you.
