Social Studies Education and History

Department of History and Political Science

Perhaps you’re interested in a rewarding career teaching at the middle school or high school level. Teaching social studies allows you to combine your individual interests with practical training and classroom experience within a profession that enriches the lives of students. Students who major in Social Studies Education will simultaneously earn a History degree.

Students who enroll in the Social Studies Education and History program will participate in a combined program of educational training and social studies content. The concentration in social studies includes historical perspectives, citizenship and American government. This is brought together with one or more focus areas in economics, geography, psychology or sociology. All of this is completed under the guidance of both the History and Political Science Department and the School of Education to ensure that students are prepared for a fulfilling teaching career.

The faculty at Grace College truly lived their lives in a way that allowed the light of Christ to shine through them. Grace College prepared me not only to teach in the classroom but to be a lifelong learner, especially in my spiritual walk.
