The FIVE-YEAR PROGRAM with an integrated MAT

Choose the five-year program for more time--- to pursue deeper content knowledge, MA level discussions of curriculum and pedagogy, or simply more time to pursue additional electives, study abroad, or minors.  And ask your advisors about new electives coming soon--- so you can spend spring of senior year building on your practicum with electives on civic engagement and teaching contentious issues.

  • Major in either History or Political Science
  • Minor in Pre-professional Secondary Education (SEED) AND
  • Minor in Interdisciplinary Social Sciences (ISS)
  • Apply to the graduate program in the CoE, and do a 5th year Masters of Teaching (MAT)

At the end of 5 years, you can be licensed to teach, and will already have a masters degree.  In this program, you are NOT licensed at the end of the B.A.-- student teaching happens as part of the MAT.
