Biology Education

As a biology education major, you will receive rigorous training in modern biology while gaining comprehensive experience in a series of courses, field experiences, and extensive classroom experience.

As a biology student, you will be continually challenged to develop skills in critical thinking and effective communication. You will learn from your fellow students while you participate in labs and other group-learning activities. Your professors will challenge and inspire you. They carefully integrate a Christian perspective, exploring the “why” behind science that points toward the intelligent design of our Creator.

As an education major, student teaching will not be your first experience in the classroom. From early on, you will gain hands-on training. You will complete a three-week, full-day practicum as well as a number of other observation and participation hours in the actual classroom before you ever begin student teaching. At Huntington, you will gain wide exposure to different grade levels and styles of teaching and learning.

As a graduate, you will be licensed to teach Science/Life Science/Biology in grades 5-12.
