Welcome Future Teachers!

UD has a strong commitment to taking our students and moving them to the "head of the class" as tomorrow's teachers. With social science concentrations in History, Economics, Geography, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology and Anthropology, our teacher candidates are well-prepared to enter the workforce. While many of our teacher candidates seek placement within Delaware public and private schools, many also choose to teach in other states across the nation. Still more graduates are taking advantage of their training to teach abroad! Considering this,our program places a strong emphasis on pedagogical strategies that are effective across many demographics of students, as well as exposing our pre-service teachers to both state and national content standards.

As you navigate through our site, please be sure to reference the Frequently Asked Questions page to help you better understand the process and the concentrations of UD's Social Studies Education Program.

Prospective Social Studies Education students enrolled in the Associate in Arts Program & their Faculty advisors, please refer to the AA Advisement page to facilitate your advancement through the coursework.
