Biology Education

As our world increases in technological complexity, it is becoming  more imperative that we educate our youth to be able to function in such a society. The program in biology education at Mount Saint Mary College is designed to prepare teachers to present modern scientific concepts in an exciting and dynamic way while also equipping their students with the ability to make educated judgments when the appropriate data is presented. In attempting to do this, the program is designed to give the successful graduate a broad and balanced background that addresses the standards of the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA). All students, after successfully completing this program, will have been exposed to topics that constitute the core competencies, advanced competencies and supporting competencies recommended for teachers by the NSTA. Students will follow a program of courses similar to a biology major, without the calculus requirement but including two semesters of earth science and one semester of statistics.
