BS Ed: Secondary Education (9-12) | Social Studies

Create Citizens who Build a Future from the Past

The Social Studies Program is available for students who plan to teach social studies at the high school level. Social Studies Program students develop their content knowledge through history and social studies courses in the College of Arts and Sciences, learn teaching and assessment skills through certification courses in the College of Education, and gain real world experience in the classroom through internship and practicums at area schools. Students who satisfactorily complete the program requirements also meet the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education teacher certification requirements for secondary social studies. Future employment can be found in public schools and private schools.

Students who already have a Bachelor's degree in one of the social studies content areas and are interested in becoming licensed teachers may earn post-baccalaureate teacher certification in Secondary Social Studies.
