INTRODUCTION

If you think life as a history curriculum teacher, european history teacher, or history teaching consultant sounds interesting, then a degree in history teacher education may just be for you. You could even become the teacher that other historians come to with questions!

POPULARITY

History teacher education is the 263rd most popular degree in America, with 574 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It narrowly lost to #262 Music Theory and Composition.

The degree is offered at a total of 185 colleges across the nation, and is the 109th most widely offered degree. It is not offered at any of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.

It is also worth noting that 35% of colleges offering history teacher education are public making it a relatively inaccessible field.

The plains produces the most history teacher education graduates, largely led by Wichita State University, while it’s the Sun Belt Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, North Carolina ranks highest, with particular help from Appalachian State University and Wingate University.

All that being said, no individual school produces more history teacher education graduates than Grand Canyon University, which graduated 41 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study history teacher education). More students studied history teacher education as a percentage of total students at Valley City State University than any other college.

We wish you luck finding the right college for you. We hope you enjoy Authority's 2022 official Best Colleges for History Teacher Education list. Some of our picks may surprise you!
