If your goal is to teach junior high or high school, you’ll work closely with a professor with a long history of doing just that. Dr. Bobby Johnson has ten years of experience in Texas public secondary schools and can provide advice based upon real-world experience.
Alongside in-depth history courses, you will take education courses designed to prepare you for any difficulties you'll face in a real-world classroom. From your first year, you'll also spend time in classrooms alongside veteran teachers who will show you firsthand the ins and outs of classroom management.
Students will meet regularly with Dr. Johnson in preparation for the ExCET/TExES exams for Texas teacher certification in history or for social studies composite certification, which includes history, government, geography and economics.
