This joint major is designed for elementary, early childhood, and special education majors. Courses selected offer the best preparation for the social studies curriculum now mandated by the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks and taught in public school classrooms, and are designed to prepare candidates for the MTEL subject matter test now required of all teacher candidates.
Students should work closely with their advisers in the education and history departments to plan a course of study. In addition to the courses prescribed in the joint major, students should take courses to complete the subject matter core required for licensing (Stage II) as well as courses that fulfill the College requirements.
