Ohio Wesleyan offers a broad range of U.S., European, Pacific Asian, and Latin American history courses. You have a great deal of creativity and flexibility in creating a program that suits your personal and historical interests, whether by taking listed courses or pursuing independent studies with individual faculty.

About the Major

The history major for teachers offers those interested in middle or high school education the opportunity to study history and qualify for licensure in integrated social studies (Grades 7-12). Students complete eight courses, with two each from the three departmental areas (U.S., Europe, and Pacific Asia, the Middle East, or Latin America). They also take all requisite professional education courses (including student teaching) and meet other state requirements.
