Course topics include:

  • U.S. history
  • world civilization
  • politics
  • economics
  • sociology
  • world geography
  • applying gaming in the classroom
  • instructional technology
  • curriculum development

You’ll learn innovative techniques and the latest technology to prepare you to teach and motivate learners in your own classroom.


While you’re here, you can join the Educators Rising organization, for great networking opportunities as well as training and preparation for the job search. And based on your academic achievements, you can also participate in our chapters of the Gamma Chi and Pi Lambda Theta honor societies.


As a graduate, you will complete all Kansas requirements for teacher certification. Our faculty will also help you find out how to become certified in other states.
