The program is ideal for someone who (1) already holds a bachelor's degree in social science, (2) wants to become a certified and licensed middle or high school social science teacher, and (3) desires to earn a master's degree. It is perfectly suited for those who can devote 15-20 hours per week to their studies, and ideal candidates include unlicensed social science substitute teachers, career changers, retired military, and others who feel the call to teach.
If you already have a social science background, you can become a licensed teacher and earn a master's degree. The M.A. in Teaching, Social Science, combines teacher licensure and a master's degree in a program that trains you to become a highly-qualified teacher and includes supervised practice teaching in an actual classroom setting. As a master's program, it includes additional training in research, instructional design, and performance improvement.
