Objectives for the Program in History

The History program offers a variety of courses to all students.  It provides a strong foundation in European, World and United States history.

The program offers a major and minor in history, as well as provisional certification for teaching history.

Requirements for the Major in History

The Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts in History require 36 hours of course work. BA and BS candidates in History must have a minor in another discipline. BA and BS candidates for History with Initial Teacher Licensure are not required to have a minor in another discipline.

Bachelor of Science in History with Initial Teacher Licensure


Students within our History major can pursue initial licensure as high school History teachers. This program provides students with both a broad introduction to high school teaching and specific instruction in the theory, research and practice of secondary History teaching. Students engage in field-based experiences in the school setting supervised by our faculty through on-site pre-practicum experiences coupled with each teaching course and a formal teaching practicum as the capstone experience. This program is nationally accredited by The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education and boasts graduates working in high schools throughout the region.

Students interested in pursuing Initial Teacher Licensure must apply for formal admission to the program.

For information about undergraduate requirements in teacher preparation, see the section titled: Teacher Preparation Programs  (Undergraduate).

Note:


* Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from prepracticum as well as practicum sites.

**POLS 2500  requires IDIS 1200  (Introduction to International Studies) or IDIS 1800  (Global Issues) as a prerequisite.

***Students must have an overall GPA of 2.5 to take any of these courses.

****Students must have an overall GPA of 2.75, 3.0 in the major courses and passing score on the MTEL Communication and Literacy and Subject Area Exam.
