Biology Education Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Departments and Degrees

In partnership with the Hope College Department of Education, the Department of Biology offers a teaching major and minor for certification through the State of Michigan (see the Department of Education  website.)

Minors for secondary teacher certification must take a minimum of 20 credits of biology. This includes the core courses in biology, plus 12 more credits selected from other courses in the department.

Because of the expectations for high school teaching, BIOL 221 - Human Physiology , is strongly recommended for teacher education candidates. Courses that are designed for preparing students for careers in the allied health fields do not count toward a biology major or minor.

Additional Biology Courses (12 credits)
