Program Overview

Valley City State University offers a degree in History Education that is primarily designed for public school teaching positions. A teaching degree is often recommended to students interested in history because it will increase marketability after a student is out of college.

Students are usually admitted into the Teacher Education program during their sophomore or junior year. The program curriculum covers a variety of topics including: European, American, world, non-western history, and special topics such as environmental and women’s history. The History Education degree is foundational for those who might want to go on to graduate school or advance to other positions in related fields such as government, travel, business, research, media, or publishing.

In addition to courses, this major also provides hands-on experience through the student teaching program. Students are placed into schools for a series of field experiences including Introduction to Education (40 hours), Practicum (80 hours), Culturally Diverse Practicum (25 hours involving 3 consecutive full days in a classroom), and a twelve-week student teaching field experience completed in a location that works well for the student and university. Student teaching is the culminating experience in which students apply all the knowledge they have learned regarding classroom preparation and field experience opportunities.
