Why study History Education or Social Science Education at NDSU?
The NDSU Teacher Education program is an NCATE accredited program. Teacher candidates are prepared for licensure in North Dakota as well as other states. The Bachelor of Science in Education program is fully accredited.
The Bachelor of Science in History Education and the Bachelor of Science in Social Education prepare students to teach grades 7-12. While completion of the History Education program allows students to teach history courses (i.e. World History and American History) at the middle and high school level, Social Science Education enables graduates to teach all of the 7-12th grade Social Studies courses, such as World History, American History, Economics, Geography, U.S. Government, Civics, Sociology, Anthropology, and Psychology. Both require the same amount of history classes at NDSU; the Social Science Education degree, however, renders the recipient more versatile and therefore more employable upon graduation.
NDSU’s Bachelor of Science in Education is the largest program in the state. Through practicum and student teaching opportunities, students receive firsthand experience in curriculum development, classroom management, and teaching methods. Teaching methods courses are taught by area teachers, allowing students to learn directly from excellent educators and to stay up to date on trends in the discipline.
