About

The Biology program of Loyola Marymount University is a general liberal arts and sciences program. The B.A. will allow for a double major with other liberal arts programs.

Overview

The Biology program of Loyola Marymount University, designed for students who plan to enter careers in teaching, provides a strong liberal arts core and allows students to pursue course requirements in education during their undergraduate years.

The B.A. in Biology Secondary Science Education Emphasis is designed to prepare students for careers in teaching high school biology. The Secondary Education Emphasis offers classroom experience and internship opportunities in addition to the subject matter content required by the State of California. Pre-professional students should select the program leading to the B.S. degree.

The B.A. in Biology with a Secondary Science Emphasis has been accredited by the State of California. Students who have successfully completed the Single Subject Matter Program in Biology (SSEB) will receive a waiver and do not have to take the CSET (California Subject Examinations for Teachers) exam; completion of the program demonstrates subject matter competency. The program goal is to produce teachers who are confident in their ability to implement the next generation science standards (NGSS), to adapt to future changes, and who have the capacity to teach science as a process of inquiry and excite curiosity in their students. Students who have successfully completed our program should possess the knowledge and expertise that will enable him/her to become a confident, enthusiastic and effective teacher.
