The UA College of Science offers several professional development courses for teachers, from marine biology research experience in the Galapagos Islands to recombinant DNA techniques! Many of these courses emphasize laboratory and research skills and focus on translating these experiences to teachable, hands-on classroom activities and modules.
Some courses are available as part of a formal degree program, such as the Masters in General Biology for Secondary School Teachers. This program makes it possible to earn a master's degree in biology during summer breaks. Many research laboratory internships and courses are also available for teachers independent of any formal degree program.
