Overview

As a graduate from the History Education program at Springfield College, students will better understand the world they inhabit, the problems of their society, and their own lives—and they’ll be ready to make their mark by teaching these concepts to middle and high school students. 

Students selecting this major also major in Education and seek licensure as a teacher of history at the secondary or middle school level.  The study of history at Springfield College is designed to provide students with a basic body of historical and related knowledge which will enable them to better understand the world they inhabit, the problems of their society, and their own lives. 

Outcomes

The College believes that this core of historical understanding enables students to function as educated and informed citizens in a democratic society. A knowledge of history and its methodology helps students understand the origins and background of contemporary problems, allowing them to deal more effectively with those problems.

Another major goal of the history program is to assist students in developing analytical, problem-solving, research, and writing skills. The major emphasizes content and information, but is also designed to foster the skills and attitudes that will increase the ability of graduates to find employment, regardless of their occupational goals. Careers in government service, law, business, and teaching readily follow the training of those who major in this discipline.
