You love atoms, molecules, and chemical reactions. The tiny mechanics of life excite your imagination, fuel your curiosity, and instill a sense of wonder. And this you want to share with the next generation of future scientists. Combine the best of our Biochemistry major with best of Teacher Education. You’ll follow your Biochemistry interests into the lab where you’ll use modern techniques in excellent facilities with direct faculty mentorship in a close-knit 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 Biochemistry soon to see if this is a good fit for you.
