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