The Social Studies Education Master's degree is the only program in the state solely focused on Social Studies Education for in-service teachers who are interested in learning both content and pedagogy related specifically to the field in which they are currently teaching.
These courses bring new perspectives to the various content areas, including ideas on how to work with both state and national standards, and allow you to develop new instructional and assessment strategies for your classroom.
Finally, you will have the opportunity to travel and/or study abroad at historic/civic sites both in the U.S. and internationally during Summer Sessions. Our Summer 2022 cohort includes the option to start with a trip to Alnwick Castle in the United Kingdom with two, three, or five-week options available.
This program is designed to accommodate teachers currently employed fulltime in their field and provides content course options that will give them the ability to teach Senior-to-Sophomore and/or College-in-the Schools courses at the secondary level offering a choice of Economics, Geography, History, or Political Science (government/civics).
