MA in Social Science for Teachers Grades 6-12 cohort to begin online Summer 2013
The University of Northern Iowa will offer a master’s program in Social Science for middle level and secondary teachers, beginning in the summer of 2013 and leading to a Master of Arts degree. This two-year, 30-credit program includes coursework and instruction in History, Geography, Political Science, Psychology and Sociology.
The program uses a cohort model in which a group of students moves together through a course sequence. A graduate of the cohort commented, “I enjoyed working with a cohort. It allowed me to make personal and professional relationships with other social studies teachers both in my area and across the state. I continue to be in contact with most people in my cohort three years after the program has ended.”
This degree will be earned at a distance, with courses delivered online and via interactive video conferencing methods, including Adobe Connect. During the last summer of the program, students will embark on a one-week, hands-on study tour. The tour’s focus will be on a specific topic, and students will attend relevant sites such as museums and historical sites.
