Social Science Education
Social studies teachers share knowledge, teach skills, and help students develop attitudes they'll use throughout their lives to:
- Identify, understand and work to solve the challenges facing a diverse nation in an interdependent world.
- Become competent and responsible citizens.
Degree and certification
- Degree: Bachelor of Science in Education with a Major in Social Science
- Certification: Graduates meet standards for certification to teach middle and high school history and social studies.
As a Social Science Education major, you'll take general education classes; professional education classes; and core social science classes in history, as well as geography, economics, and/or political science.
Admission to the teacher education program is selective. For a complete listing of requirements, go to www.minotstateu.edu/tehp.
Certification as a Registered Radiologic Technologist/Radiographer is based on successful completion of the American Registry for Radiologic Technologist (AART) exam. MSU radiologic technology graduates have an excellent passing rate, often scoring in the 90th percentile or higher among all candidates taking the exam.
Employment of radiologic technologists is growing faster than average for all occupations. Although hospitals are the main employers - four of five 2012 Trinity Hospital School of Radiologic Technology graduates were hired by Trinity Hospital, due to the emphasis on outpatient care a number of new jobs will be in physicians' offices and imaging centers.
Is teaching social studies right for you?
Social studies teaching requires effective use of technology, communication, and reading/writing skills. Social studies teachers must have a command of the subjects that comprise social studies and enjoy working with students.
Our faculty members have the academic training and the real world experience to provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to succeed as a social science teacher.
The College of Arts and Sciences provides fundamental liberal arts education for all MSU students, giving students the knowledge, skills and values to help them think critically and creatively. The College of Education & Health Sciences oversees all education programs, which are accredited by the National Council for Accreditation for Teacher Education.
