Are you a high school teacher looking to boost your qualifications to teach dual credit courses in history?

Our M.S. Ed. program offers a concentration in history that provides coursework for high school teachers seeking to enhance their knowledge and understanding of this field in order to satisfy Higher Learning Commission (HLC) requirements for instructors of dual credit courses. The program requires 36-credit hours of graduate level work.

The coursework focuses on teaching the advanced methods and skills of historians through classes on the modern world with special courses in U.S., European, Latin American and Chinese history.

It meets the required accreditation outcomes, prepares candidates with required research skills, guarantees that curriculum needs are met and adds the recognition of a concentration in history to the M.S.Ed. degree.
