History Education

As a history education major, you will receive rigorous training in history while gaining comprehensive experience in a series of courses, field experiences, and classroom experience throughout your time at Huntington University.

In pursing your degree in history education, you will gain specifically designed skills that will give you hands-on, practical experiences every semester. You will complete a three-week, full-day practicum as well as a number of other observation and participation hours in the actual classroom before you ever begin student teaching.   At Huntington, you will gain wide exposure to different grade levels and styles of teaching and learning.

As a history student, you will learn both content and process.  Our department places a strong emphasis on three things:  studying history as a means of improving your cultural literacy; striving to understand your own world view and that of others; and acquiring a mastery of critical historical methodology – that is, understanding how historians work.
