SUMMARY

Studying Biology Teacher Education is not only a valuable choice, but ordinarily a mandatory first step for undergraduates trying to pursue a career as a biology teacher, a biology science tutor, or a biologist . In fact, biology teacher education is an uncommon degree ranking as the 306th most popular area of study. Last academic year, there were 364 biology teacher education degrees conferred. In-state tuition at public institutions is, on average, 2.1 times more spendy than their private fellows.

There are 291 colleges which offer this degree. This number of universities is on par with other majors offered in the United States. If you are looking to surround yourself with other biology teacher education undergrads, look at universities in Utah which have more students admitted to biology teacher education than any other state. More generally, the best region to get a degree in biology teacher education is in the Rocky Mountains region with Brigham Young University-Idaho, Brigham Young University-Provo, and Western Governors University best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection of the top conference to study biology teacher education is the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference with Minnesota State University-Mankato, Saint Cloud State University, and University of Mary representing the conference. Based on our extensive list of the best colleges, our choice for the best college for biology teacher education is University of California-Irvine.

The objectively 'best' school is not necessarily the best school for every student. There are a bunch more perspectives to weigh when selecting school. Stuff like campus amenities, transportation services, and food could modify one's choice on which school to attend. Here at authority.org, we evaluated the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you want to know which biology teacher education college is home to the top campus, the winner is University of California-Irvine. If, for example, you are very interested in which school boasts the finest campus, we have an entire page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, government databases, student reviews, and more in order to compare all U.S. majors in an unbiased and informative way. You can find our well researched list for the universities with the best student life&nbsphere and our pick for the school with the best student life for biology teacher education is University of Delaware. Are you curious why? Keep reading to learn more about Authority's top choices. Some of our conclusions will probably shock you.

University of California-Irvine&nbspappears to be our most expensive university for biology teacher education, at least for out of state enrollment. We do have a list of the most expensive&nbspcolleges that might put the expense at University of California-Irvine&nbspinto perspective.

In-state learners can anticipate paying about $11,600 for a degree in biology teacher education. The cost shrinks substantially to a median of $26,800 for an out-of-state public-school student. Our choice for the university representing the best value for biology teacher education: University of Delaware. Here you will find our comprehensive list of the schools we believe to be the best value&nbspoverall. With that said, this discussion is based on the assumption that you are an out-of-state student. A discussion of value changes when in-state tuition is considered, but we do not know where you live (and are not trying to collect that kind of data).

Earnings for biology teacher education majors differ a lot, but within two years leaving college students will typically make in the neighborhood of $46,100. While there can be a lot of variation in pay; highest paid earners can make up to $91,200. Even right out of university, the lowest earning positions within the biology teacher education field make $22,900, which is an alright wage. The highest earning graduates for biology teacher education studied at University of Delaware&nbspand if you want to find the universities with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The prevailing diversity of biology teacher education is pretty bad, arriving within only the 12th percentile of all majors. The college with the most composite diversity for biology teacher education is Western Governors University&nbspand here you can find our general list of the colleges which have the most diversity. The financial diversity of the Biology Teacher Education major only ranks within the 78th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is even lower in the 10th percentile. White collegians make up the largest share at 79% of those majoring in biology teacher education. Additionally, 73% of undergraduates seeking a biology teacher education major are women.

We have insufficient professors data for biology teacher education to make the conclusions we normally would have made in this sentence. If we including data other than basic rankings it becomes clear that the university with comprehensively the best professors for biology teacher education is University of California-Irvine. One can find more detail on our evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, along with some of the best examples of instructors in the U.S.

Finally, the most difficult school to get into for biology teacher education is University of California-Irvine. While we think of this list more as a novelty, we do have a detailed page of the hardest colleges to get into. But, we hope you believe that approaching higher education with a lens mainly built on superlatives might cause issues. We hope you explore our other pages on different schools and read some of our helpful background articles on useful details to consider as you continue your school search.
