Biology Education: Unified Science


The B.S.Ed. in Unified Science-Biology prepares students who will be certified in all areas of high school science. This degree is very desirable from the school district’s point of view and is a necessity for teachers in very small districts where a single teacher may serve the entire high school. In larger districts teachers with unified science certification can be hired for more types of science positions
