Biological Science B.A. with Life Sciences 7-12 Certification

Inspire Future STEM Innovators

If you ever mastered a tough concept in a math or science class, chances are that a great teacher helped guide you through it. School districts always need inspiring teachers who can guide students toward mastery of challenging concepts in a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) field. With a Bachelor of Arts Biological Science with Life Science 7-12 Certification from the University of Houston-Clear Lake, you can be the teacher.

Great Professors and Preparation Add Up to Great Career Choices

The committed faculty at UHCL will provide you with a strong foundation, both academically and pedagogically, along with extensive field experiences for prospective Life Sciences teachers. You’ll gain a deep understanding of the interconnectedness of life and other areas that will make you a well-rounded educator. Your professors maintain a close partnership with multiple school districts across Texas, promoting UHCL students’ placement in those systems. Most College of Education graduates find a job placement immediately after graduation—often even if they graduate during an “off” hiring time.
