1One of many possible programs of study that meets the minimum requirements for a BS in Biology (see below) and prepares a student for certification to teach high school biology (application to teacher education is required (see undergraduate catalog)).  A student is advised NOT to pursue this plan without formally declaring a major in Biology and consulting regularly with their assigned advisor.  A student uses non-assigned advisors at their own risk.  NOTE: This program of study is designed to complete the course requirements for teacher education prior to the start of the third year (see undergraduate catalog for other eligibility requirements).  Admission to teacher education is required for enrollment into Education Blocks as noted in the program above.
