Interested in Teaching?

Interested in teaching History/Social Studies in a North Carolina public school? Consider the Masters of Arts in Teaching program at ECU.

Students can:

  • Earn a BA in History from the Department of History (a four-year degree)
  • Earn an MAT from the College of Education (a one-year degree)
Combining a BA in History with a Masters of Arts in Teaching offers significant advantages:
  • More and more, states (including NC) are requiring teachers to demonstrate mastery of a subject, not just of teaching technique. A degree in History gives you the opportunity to gain a deep understanding of the subject.
  • For an extra year of study, you earn a graduate degree. Licensed teachers with graduate degrees earn more than their counterparts with undergraduate degrees.

Talk to your advisor about the value of a History BA and an MAT.
