Today's secondary school teachers are faced with unique challenges. In addition to instructing young minds, teachers are sometimes faced with situations that would benefit from firm ethical standards. Principals are searching for educators who possess ethical strength in addition to a combination of content knowledge and teaching skill.

About

If you would like to contribute to your community by becoming an educator, Grand Canyon University's (GCU) Bachelor of Arts in History for Secondary Education can help you become a middle school or high school social studies or history teacher. The College of Humanities and Social Sciences offers this history teacher degree program to provide a solid foundation in historical content and the classroom skills for a successful career in teaching in a curriculum infused with Christian and ethical teachings.

The contemporary history programs at GCU explore the discipline thematically, as an alternative to the more common chronological approach. This secondary education degree engages you in historical contexts that are relevant to your interests and contemporary society.

Programs leading to teacher certification may require practicum hours, state exams, student teaching and an institutional recommendation from GCU.
