SOCIAL STUDIES EDUCATION

Students may work toward Social Studies certification through the following two programs which are housed in the History Department. Both programs have a specific purpose. The History/Social Studies Secondary Education is a Dual Major in History and Education with required courses in the other social science departments. While this program provides the student with the necessary courses for Secondary Social Studies Teaching Certification for Grade 7- 12, it also provides a strong History background for those interested in graduate or law school.

The Social Studies Certification Program provides the basic courses that will give students the opportunity to meet the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) standards or competencies required for one to teach Social Studies at the Secondary level for Grades 7 – 12. Students will need to take courses in history, political science, sociology, economics, psychology as well as the Education Department.
