Empower students as learners

Have you ever wondered why our nation behaves as it does today? How the civilizations that once dominated the world fell? Or even, perhaps, what the future may hold? The key to it all is to dig into our past. That’s what you’ll learn with a history focus in the secondary education program, a field of study that will help you interact with the past, while preparing you to engage with the students of your future. Digging into history can lead to a whole new world of ideas. It’s not just names and dates – those are all merely the outline to a far more interesting story. One you’ll uncover little by little in every class. Our curriculum provides a solid foundation in the Liberal Arts to help you develop yourself as a critical and organized thinker and teacher, ready to impart the most important lessons in, well … all of history.

Program Overview

This program will help you develop your understanding of major events and themes across multiple eras. You’ll learn about global history and the philosophy of history, and you’ll gain the skills necessary to read, write, and teach about history. From ancient civilizations to modern Europe, Asia to America, from politics to economics, the history of warfare to the history of food, clothing, and sports. Studying the past helps us learn about human nature. It teaches us about ourselves. Which, of course, comes in handy when you’re on a track to becoming a teacher yourself.
