Are you a high school teacher looking to boost your qualifications to teach dual credit courses in biology?
Our M.S. Ed. program offers a concentration in biology that provides coursework for high school teachers seeking to enhance their knowledge and understanding of this field in order to satisfy Higher Learning Commission (HLC) requirements for instructors of dual credit courses. The program requires 30-credit hours of graduate level work.
It meets the required accreditation outcomes, prepares candidates with required research skills, guarantees that curriculum needs are met and adds the recognition of a concentration in biology to the M.S.Ed. degree.
All courses are 3 credit hours unless otherwise noted.
