Teaching Major in Social Studies

The teaching major in social studies is a good fit if you enjoy social sciences and want to teach at the high school level. This program combines courses in history, political science, and pedagogy, as well as the experience of student teaching, to prepare you for Indiana licensing to teach in public schools.

As a teaching major in social studies, you can select political science as one of three social studies discipline areas. This major is a collaboration among the Department of History, the Department of Political Science and Teachers College.

With the small classes, experience of your professors, and challenging coursework, once you complete the teaching program, you will have a good command of the basic features of American government, international affairs, and political theory.
