The Bradley Advantage

Earning a history and social studies education degree is like earning two degrees for the price of one. You take core subject courses in history, and other humanities and social science departments, while you complete the teacher education requirements. Each student is assigned an advisor in history and an advisor in teacher education. Professional classroom experiences begin your first year and culminate with student teaching your senior year. 

Successful Outcomes

Bradley’s history-social studies education program successfully prepares you to enter the workforce. Education students boast a 100 percent pass rate on Illinois licensure tests and almost all find jobs within six months of graduation. They’re working throughout Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, North Carolina, Texas and Wisconsin.
