Procedure for obtaining teacher certification when you already have a Bachelor's Degree in Biology

Some individuals do not realize that they want to teach until late in their college studies and may find it more prudent to graduate with a non-teaching Bachelor's Degree and then return to school to pursue a teaching certificate in their major field of study.

Others may have graduated, gone into the work force, and later decided that they want to have a career in teaching.

In these, and perhaps other instances, the solution may be to return to college to complete the needed coursework to obtain a teaching certificate from their State Board of Education.
