Biology Education Program Description
University of Maryland Baltimore County is proposing to offer a new Bachelor of Arts in Biology Education. The program will provide a foundation in the biological sciences and coursework necessary for certification to teach biology at the secondary level (grades 7 – 12). Graduates of the program will be fully trained biologists, who are capable of working in a range of technical positions outside of secondary education. Students who plan to become biology educators will help the State of Maryland strengthen the STEM preparation of secondary students.
