We invite future teachers who are interested in making a positive difference in the world. Social studies education cultivates the ways students conceive of their own place in history, position in the economy, their effect in civic spaces, and their notions of belonging.

Along with learning effective strategies for teaching to middle and high school students, our programs explore several topics within social studies. These include:

  • History
  • Economics
  • Geography
  • Politics
