Biology, BA/Adolescent Education, MST



According to the White House, an additional 100,000 STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) teachers are needed over the next 10 years. The BA in Biology and MST in Adolescent Education combined degree helps fill that gap by preparing students to teach biology to middle and high school students (grades 7–12). This accelerated program can be completed in five years.
