History (Secondary Education) (BA)

The secondary education concentration within the BA in history offers a flexible degree for students who are considering a career in education.

The concentration program fully prepares students for teaching and certification. At the same time, the concentration provides all the disciplinary knowledge of a traditional history degree and prepares students for a variety of noneducation careers. By developing strong critical reading, writing and research skills as well as skills in oral presentation, the program creates a solid foundation for graduate work in history, law or business.

Students currently enrolled in the Bachelor of Arts in history (secondary education) offered by The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences may not pursue a concurrent degree with the Bachelor of Arts in history offered by The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the Bachelor of Arts in secondary education (history) offered by the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College, the Bachelor of Arts in history offered by the New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences, or the Bachelor of Arts in history offered by the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts due to the high level of overlap in curriculum. Students should speak with their academic advisor for any further questions.
