Social Studies/History

TYPE: Major
DEGREE: B.A./B.S.
DEPARTMENT: Social Inquiry Department

LOCATION: On-Campus

A history major with a social studies teaching concentration prepares students to teach history and "fusion" courses that integrate several social studies disciplines. Fusion courses are defined as those that integrate several social studies disciplines and require composite preparation in social studies. Civics, social problems, American problems, area studies, and contemporary issues are examples of fusion courses.

A history major with a social studies teaching concentration leads to grades 4-12 licensure in the State of Wisconsin. Certification for licensure requires completion of the Instruction Minor/required teacher certification coursework and student teaching in middle and/or high school. 

While our programs are designed to align with Wisconsin state licensure requirements, many students apply for licenses in other states, such as Michigan and Minnesota. Students are encouraged to check with their state’s Department of Education to determine if there are additional requirements.

If you currently hold a degree and are interested in teaching, UW-Superior offers licensure programs that apply your prior coursework. For more information, contact admissions@uwsuper.edu.
