Transforming the learning experience in the classroom
Our Masters Degree in Secondary Social Studies with a dual certification in English as a Second Language (ESL) prepares teachers with the skills and knowledge needed to transform the learning experience in the classroom.
The subjects that comprise social studies—history, economics, geography, political science, sociology, and psychology—are rich, interrelated disciplines, each critical to the background of thoughtful citizens.
We believe in an integrative approach to teaching Social Studies—addressing the totality of human experience over time and space, connecting with the past, linked to the present, and looking ahead to the future.
The best Social Studies teachers develop awareness of their own values and how those values influence their teaching. They assess their teaching from multiple perspectives and, when appropriate, adjust it to achieve a better balance.
