What kinds of opportunities will I have?

This degree equips you to teach social studies (history, government, economics, and sociology) in grades 7–12. 

  • You’ll have opportunities to explore the classroom setting from your first year in urban, rural, and suburban schools.
  • You’ll spend a semester as a student teacher in the school of your choice—in addition to a student teaching seminar that will meet weekly.
