Hands-on experiences happen here.
The Bachelor of Arts in Biology Education is a secondary education program addressing the continuing shortage of highly qualified teachers in Georgia.
Advisors are selected for both their teaching skill and experience in high school classrooms, and model techniques proved to work in high school settings when teaching their college content courses.
Designed to produce teachers who have more hands-on experience, the program enables candidates to observe and assist with teaching in 6-12 grrade classrooms. Candidates also experience the impact that diversity has on schooling and consider the implications on teaching and learning.
Candidates study and reflect upon the knowledge, skills, and dispositions (habits of mind) required for successful teachers both in their college classes and during fieldwork. Requiring a content major in the field of study, this program culminates in a full year Apprentice Teaching experience in area schools.
