There is an unprecedented demand for science teachers nationwide.

General Science and Biology Teacher Certification alumni teach in public and private middle and high schools throughout the country. Many of our alumni teach in Expeditionary-Based Learning Schools, Coalition Schools, and Environmental Charter Schools.

Our graduates teach life, physical, earth, and environmental science in the middle school, and biology, AP environmental science, and ecology in the high school. All our certification graduates instill their curricula with an environmental science and ecology orientation.

Teacher certification alumni also direct after-school programs, direct and/or teach in environmental camps and outdoor leadership programs during their summer breaks, as well as write environmental and ecology curricula.

“Science programs ensure candidates will demonstrate competency in the full depth and range of knowledge, skills, and dispositions for their certification area(s) by requiring that both cooperating teachers and supervisors complete checklists of certification standards at multiple intervals during the capstone experience. Such transparent incorporation of state standards is outstanding.” New Hampshire Council of Teacher Education (NHCTE), Program Review 2011
