History B.A. with Grades 7-12 Social Studies Certification

Teach Future Generations about Human Society

Great social studies teachers teach their students to celebrate diversity, model democracy, and inspire their students to work for social justice. With your UHCL Bachelor of Arts in History and teacher certification in social studies 7-12, you’ll become one of those great teachers. You will develop the ability to frame history as a series of past events that impact the future, while teaching your students how to be engaged, competent citizens living in a democracy.

You will also learn how to problem-solve, think critically and analytically, do research, work collaboratively, and communicate their perspectives on historical themes, both orally and in writing. Your certification in social studies enables you to teach history, government, geography, and economics.

Launching Your Career in Education

UHCL’s committed College of Education and College of Human Sciences and Humanities faculty will provide you with a strong foundation, both academically and pedagogically, along with extensive field experiences for prospective social studies teachers. You will begin your student teaching once you have passed all of your required state teacher certification exams, ensuring that you’ll enter the classroom with a sense of complete preparation and confidence. Your professors maintain a close partnership with multiple school districts, promoting UHCL students’ placement in those systems. Additionally, with facilitation from Career Services, you’ll attend a job fair every semester.
