B.S. in History Education
If you're ready to teach students how the world works and make sense of it all, we're here to help guide you on your way. Our History Education program (HIED) will prepare you to navigate the complex educational profession by getting you ready for certification, concentrating on real-world applications of theory, and supporting you with experienced advisors throughout your education.
Our program is designed to prepare teachers of adolescents, largely at the secondary school level. It leads to grades 6 - 12 teacher certification in the teaching field of history for the state of Georgia. Candidates complete the equivalent of a major in history and a second major in pedagogical studies. Candidates concentrate in history, as this is the principal social science discipline in the secondary education curriculum, and take additional course work in several other social science disciplines as part of their cross-disciplinary teaching field preparation.
The B.S. in History Education is fully accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), is fully approved by Georgia’s Professional Standards Commission for teacher certification, and is nationally recognized by the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS).
