Secondary Education for Social Studies (5-12)

This broadfield major comprises at least 54 semester credits of content-area course work, with a concentration in history and political science, and additional course work in economics, geography, psychology, and/or sociology. Since the major and the minor are combined in this program, a teaching minor is not required for licensure.


To be licensed to teach in a secondary school in Montana, grades 5-12, students at Carroll must complete a secondary education major or a K-12 major. Students interested in a secondary education major or a K-12 major should contact not only individuals within the major department, but also must seek additional counsel from an advisor within the Department of Education. Students pursuing licensure in secondary education must be accepted into the Teacher Education Program.
