Help students uncover life’s mysteries, and empower them to use
science for the better through hands-on activities that make
science real and fun.
Combine a bachelors in Biology with an Education minor and build
the skills you'll need as a secondary school science teacher.
Investigate cell chemistry and gene expression in newly
renovated, industry-standard lab facilities. Explore conservation
in the field—while kayaking in Florida’s mangrove forests, and
trekking through Belize. Create lesson plans that foster curiosity
and inquiry—and try them out in a practicum placement.
In 2011, Saint Leo’s Education department was named a national
finalist for the Distinguished Program in Teacher Education
The minor in Education helps prepare students to teach science
at the secondary level. Besides working as educators, Saint Leo
students find employment in government, industry and other
health-related professions, and even pursue graduate study in
medicine, dentistry and veterinary science. If you want to teach,
many school districts and states will require a teaching
certificate, which may require additional preparation.
