Secondary Education (Emphasis in Social Studies):

 
Education
This program is offered by the College of Education in conjunction with content area courses provided by the College of Arts and Sciences for students who are preparing for a teaching career in grades 7-12, inclusive of middle and high school, and who are seeking initial teacher licensure. The format and courses of this regionally accredited and Arizona-approved program are designed to maximize the content knowledge that the teacher candidate will possess upon graduation. All courses are directly aligned with the Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (INTASC) principles. Content courses are aligned to the standards of the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS). Opportunities are provided to apply concepts, theories, and research throughout the program. Assessments within many of the courses guide students through 120 hours of practicum/field experiences prior to student teaching, and the final semester of the program requires a full-time, 16-week student teaching component. Applicants to the program are responsible for contacting their state department of education for licensure requirements and program approval. Arizona or home state fingerprint/background clearance is required for all practicum/field experiences and student teaching. Furthermore, applicants should consult the Grand Canyon University Catalog, the University Policy Handbook, and an academic counselor to obtain information regarding current policies and procedures inherent in a teacher licensure program.
