Are you interested in the study of living things? Would you like to share this knowledge with individuals?


The Biology Secondary Education program at Marywood provides a strong background in biology and the physical sciences. You'll learn basic concepts in biology, chemistry, math, and physics, as well as more advanced concepts in areas such as molecular biology, anatomy, microbiology, and ecology.

Lab work is required, because we believe that the teachers of tomorrow are also the scientists of tomorrow.
