The B.A.Sc. degree in teaching life science is offered by the Department of Education in conjunction with the Department of Biology. This major prepares students to teach all science areas in grades 5-8 and to teach life science in grades 9 through 12. Students have the option of also completing the environment education emphasis with this major. This emphasis enhances the student's major by integrating environmental education into formal (pre-K-12), as well as nonformal education settings such as parks and nature centers. The emphasis in environmental education is noted on the student's diploma.
