The study of history and the social sciences speaks to the very core of what it means to be human and to live a life of meaning. If you are thinking about majoring in history and yearn to have a direct impact on your community through teaching, this hybrid program is for you. At the heart of BU’s history and social sciences education degree is the desire to become a servant leader in the classroom. You’ll study the same courses as history and social sciences majors in addition to specialized education classes that prepare you for teacher licensure when you graduate.
The Bluefield University Difference
Dr. Shellie Brown of the School of Education says, “When students graduate from Bluefield University with a degree in teacher education, they are completely prepared for teaching with all of the necessary certifications, qualifications, knowledge, and skills. School districts want graduates from our teacher education program because we have a stellar reputation for preparing students for the classroom.” You’ll gain that preparation through rigorous courses and more than 100 hours of actual classroom observation that begin in your second or third semester. That fieldwork prepares you for a more successful student teaching experience.
We hope you’ll visit campus to see everything we offer and how the Bluefield University difference can impact your life.
