Careers and Internships


While the need for science teachers is high and the majority of Clarion education graduates find employment within the Commonwealth, the high standards required to earn a PA teaching certification make it highly portable to other states.

The skills and knowledge integrated into the Secondary Education Biology program also prepare graduates to move into fields which combine science knowledge, leadership, interpersonal and organizational skills.   For example, science education alumni have successfully entered the workforce as corporate trainers, museum educators, science center directors, pharmaceutical sales, and outdoor education coordinators.  They are also well prepared for graduate study in biology or science education.
