The Social Studies for Secondary Teachers option gives high-quality academic preparation to students who wish to become Colorado licensed grades 7-12 social studies teachers. Students who complete this option become licensed to teach history, geography, political science, economics, anthropology, sociology, and psychology in grades 7-12. This option is extremely demanding and requires careful planning and advising. Students choosing this option should consult a History Department advisor as early as possible in their careers, and should read the Teacher Education Licensure Program  section of this catalog for the steps and requirements for applying to the Teacher Education Licensure Program, and requirements for completing the program.
