Do you love hands-on lab work? Do you dream of teaching biology and other science classes to middle or high school students? If you answered yes, then the biology education major at BU is the program for you. Biology education majors study the world at the cellular level and build upon that knowledge to encompass all living things and their ecosystems. You’ll also immerse yourself in education classes, where experienced professors break down the science and art of teaching so you can become a skilled teacher. And you’ll begin actual classroom observations early in your studies.
