Challenge yourself to think on a global scale — and have your students do likewise with the Secondary Education Social Studies program of York College of Pennsylvania.


We want you to confront the fundamental questions of life as you journey from student to secondary education social studies teacher. What connects us all? How does the past affect the future? What common threads can we see in politics? We help challenge you with intensive instruction in history, political science, geography, economics, psychology, sociology, and anthropology. And we layer that with mentoring faculty who prepare you as an educator with research-based teaching methods and concepts.

Field experience and student teaching help round out your education with real world experience. Graduates of the Secondary Education Social Studies program of York College of Pennsylvania are ready to take on their own social studies classroom at the middle school or high school level. This degree prepares students for professional teacher certification in grades 7-12.
