Biology for Educators

The Graduate Certificate in Biology for Educators will provide additional training in biological sciences to K-12 teachers and other educators. The certificate will provide recognition to those individuals who complete 12 credit hours of coursework in graduate level biology, with the option to complete up to 18 credit hours for those interested in teaching AP courses or teaching at the community college level (dependent on individual community college credential requirements). All students will choose between four and six courses (3 credits each) in topic areas that align with their own goals, including a capstone course in the science of learning. Course topics will include animal behavior, communicable and non-communicable diseases, toxicology, evolution, genetics and microbiology. Faculty are continuing to develop new courses to increase options.
