Social Studies Education
Thank you for visiting the website of the Secondary Social Studies Program at the City College of New York!
City College's Social Studies Education Program supports undergraduate
and graduate students, who are current or prospective teachers, to
skillfully enact social studies curriculum in grades 7 - 12. Towards
this end, students consult research and theory that illuminates the
qualities of good teaching. They plan and execute lessons in authentic
classrooms and reflect on these teaching experiences with course
instructors and mentoring, cooperating teachers. They draw on and
develop knowledge related to social studies including knowledge of
history, government, and civic engagement. Through these and other
experiences, we prepare students to meet standards of excellence as
middle and high school social studies teachers.
Please review the sections of this website to learn more about our program, including our admissions and advisement policies.
