Core Education

An education in teaching history can prepare students well for different types of museum or interpretive field work, as well as give them the basics necessary to build a career in other aspects of teaching, including coaching, working with special needs students, administration, and more. Since the teaching of history and other social science subjects is a core component of all secondary education programs, the need for such teachers is constant.
