Non-matriculating degree students will have the option of enrolling in a series of courses leading to a Certificate in one of four areas:
- European History
- American History
- World History
This option will appeal especially to educators seeking to qualify for Act 48 or “highly qualified” status.
Under this plan, students will complete the following four (4) courses:
- History 510 (Historiography)
- History 610, 620, 630 (One Course in Chosen Area)
- History Elective (Area Specific)
- History Elective (Area Specific) or Teaching of Advanced Placement History (EDC 772, 773, or 779)
With the approval of the Director, students who earn a certificate may apply the four courses toward either the M.A. in History or the M.A. in History for Educators.
