Social Studies Education 5-12

The social studies education major is designed for students who want to teach history, government, and other social studies in middle or high schools. In this interdisciplinary major, you'll study in the education department and the history, philosophy, and political science department. You'll complete the education courses required to meet Minnesota standards for middle and high school teachers. Our rigorous programs are taught by educators with firsthand experience working and teaching in their licensure area. Coursework provides opportunities to get in the classroom and do the work teachers do, while having time to reflect on your progress as an aspiring teacher.
