Professional Development

The University of Arizona, College of Science, offers a variety of courses for teachers, from a marine biology, to a class on recombinant DNA techniques, and even a research experience in the Galapagos Islands!

Many courses emphasize laboratory and research experiences and focus on translating the experience to teachable classroom activities. 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. A many research lab internships and courses are available for teachers independent of a formal degree program.
