Empower students as learners

By looking at the world through the various lenses of economics, history, geography, political science, social science and psychology, you’ll prepare yourself to help your students do the same. A degree in secondary education with a major in Broadfield Social Studies will give you a clear awareness of modern and historical perspectives on these subjects and ready you for a life of service as a teacher. With access to an experienced staff and a curriculum focused on participation in society as productive Christian citizens, by the time you graduate you’ll possess the vital ability to view the world through one final lense: the lense of a teacher.


All courses offered face-to-face on main campus.

Program Overview

Through a blend of the social sciences, history, and humanities, you’ll learn to guide your students through a myriad of perspectives and social structures, and be able to adapt such lessons for the next generation of thinkers.  Perhaps most importantly, you’ll understand how to help your students discover how people relate to each other, how we interact as groups, and how we organize our thoughts, religions, and governments. With a foundation in social studies, your students will be able to understand the world around them, and their place in it.
