What to expect as a social studies education student at JBU
Observe and teach with teachers
Students spend a lot of time in clinical-style education with mentor teachers. Through observing and teaching alongside these teachers, JBU students become confident in their capabilities in areas such as classroom management and lesson planning.
Study strong curriculum
JBU’s social studies education program combines the rigor of the education program with the breadth of the history curriculum. This combination develops students into experts in their field of study.
JBU students can spend time studying in Lithuania, Guatemala, Honduras, Northern Ireland and various parts of the world. Not only does JBU equip students to transfer their teaching license to go and teach in other places, but also gives them a chance to enhance their teaching education abroad before they even graduate.
