Social Science

Bachelor of Science in Education (B.S.E.)

College: College of Liberal Arts & Communication


The B.S.E. degree program prepares students to become secondary social studies educators in grades 7-12. B.S.E. graduates who earn their teaching license become certified to teach U.S. History, World History, Arkansas History, African-American History, American Government, World Geography, Economics, Sociology, and Psychology. The program includes a semester-long teaching internship in the secondary schools under the supervision of the B.S.E. program director. Many B.S.E. graduates continue their education with a Master of Arts in History degree or an M.S.E. in Social Science--both of which are accessible to teachers by offering courses via distance education.


Curriculum and degree requirements can be found in the most current Undergraduate Bulletin.
