Secondary Education – History (BA Education)

Share Your Passion For History 

There are few occupations more important than educating today’s youth. As a teacher in middle school or high school, you will have the opportunity to contribute to society by shaping adolescent minds. The Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education with a Concentration in Social Studies prepares you to work with children from seventh through twelfth grade in public, private, and alternative school systems. Completing this degree will prepare you to inspire your students through historical concepts and learning. If you feel the calling to work with children and/or adolescents and want to strengthen the community and society through education, consider becoming a secondary education teacher.

It takes a dedicated individual to be a secondary teacher as the job is certainly not an easy one. As a teacher, your students will look to you for education, guidance, and support. Education majors in the Nevada State College Teacher Preparation Program must participate in a planned series of field experiences with an emphasis on history, as an integral part of their training. Here, we provide a supportive, inclusive and hands-on learning experience so that you can BE CONFIDENT when leading your classrooms.
