Education Programs within the History & Political Science Department
In a colloborative effort, the history and education departments work closely together toward one solid goal - preparing the best educators for a successful future.
History Teaching - Through the history education curriculum, Mount Mary prepares its students to engage their pupils by involving them in the lives and significant events of those who have created the world in which they live. This connectedness with their roots develops a sense of their place in the great story of human experience.
Social Studies Teaching - This major draws from the disciplines of history, geography, political science, economics, anthropology, psychology, civics, archaeology, and sociology with attention given to connections among peoples and nations of the world and the forces that influence their lives. The major focuses on preparing students to make informed and reasoned decisions as citizens of a culturally diverse and interdependent world.
Education courses within the history discipline are offered in the online or online/on demand format. This allows students to keep moving toward their degree completion requirements at a convenient time for them.
