Biology with a view to Education

General information

The study programme is a part of a double-subject programme and constitutes the first level of the university studies leading to a teaching qualification for secondary schools. The goal of the study is to provide general knowledge and give a good orientation in both study branches together with the basics of pedagogy and psychology. It should prepare graduates for the follow-up Master's study programme of Upper Secondary School Teacher Training in Biology.

A successful graduate is able to

  • apply the knowledge and skills from basic biological sciences
  • determine and identify typical plants and animals of the Czech Republic
  • work in a biological laboratory
  • design and conduct biological experiments
  • apply the knowledge of nature conservation of a particular area in teaching

Graduate employment

Graduates can use their skills in various positions in basic and applied research, such as laboratories. Although they are not fully qualified for teaching, they can prepare special activities and seminars at primary and secondary schools (e.g. seminars for gifted students, preparation for the Olympiads and different competitions, or for entrance exams to higher education institutions). They can also get involved in the popularization of biology. Graduates can pursue their studies in the follow-up Master's study programme – to become fully qualified teachers of biology at secondary schools.
