About this Specialization
Applied Learning Project
Learners will complete assessments that allow them to apply the biology everywhere lens to their daily lives. For educators interested in teaching with a biology everywhere pedagogy, an optional honors track is available that focuses on how to apply biology everywhere principles in your own classroom. By completing the Honors Track, you are eligible to receive graduate credit from the University of Colorado Boulder.
How the Specialization Works
A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.
Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.
Earn a Certificate
When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
