Double BA - History & SSTP
History/SSTP Double Major
The double major in History and in Social Science Teacher Preparation (SSTP) is ideal for students considering a teaching career. Middle and high school social science teachers typically teach survey courses in both United States and World History. Future social science teachers would therefore benefit from acquiring the in-depth historical content knowledge and historical thinking skills of a History BA. But social science teachers at the secondary level must often teach economics, government, geography, or ethnic studies as well. Students who double major in History and SSTP will therefore benefit from the breadth of courses in the SSTP program and its emphasis on the practical elements of teaching, including how to engage students in the classroom and how to create and maintain effective learning environments. Both majors can be completed in four years and will provide subject matter preparation for a single subject teaching credential program.
