Skilled Biologist, Effective Teacher
As a biology education major, you will receive rigorous training in modern biology while gaining comprehensive experience in a series of courses, field experiences, and, of course, extensive classroom experience.
As a biology student, you will be continually challenged to develop
skills in critical thinking and effective communication. You will learn
from your fellow students while you participate in labs and other
group-learning activities. Your professors will challenge and inspire
you. They carefully integrate a Christian perspective, exploring the
“why” behind science that points toward the intelligent design of our
Teaching Experience Throughout Your Student Career
As an education major, student teaching will not be your first
experience in the classroom. From early on, you will gain hands-on
training. You will complete a three-week, full-day practicum in a multicultural school in Fort Wayne as well as observation and participation hours in the actual classroom before you ever begin student teaching. At Huntington, you will gain wide exposure to different grade levels and styles of teaching and learning.
Huntington students have a very high rate of passage on state education competency tests. Our NCATE-accredited program is specifically designed for students who wish to obtain an Indiana teaching license. Reciprocity agreements with other states help our graduates find employment all across the country.
As a graduate, you will be licensed to teach grades 5-12 in biology.
