Students planning to seek New York State teaching certification in Biology should file an application form in the Department of Teacher Education during their sophomore year. Once accepted, it is the student's responsibility to seek advisement from the advisors or chairpersons in the Departments of Biology and Teacher Education. Students intending to teach Biology at the secondary school level must successfully complete the requirements of a major in this discipline.

Due to changing requirements for New York State Teacher Certification and changes in program and course requirements, it is important that students maintain continuous contact with the Department of Teacher Education and their education advisor, located in Room 1D12, (718) 262-2450.Email: teachered@york.cuny.edu
