FHSU Program in History and Government The Third-Highest Ranked Secondary Education Program in the Nation

One of the strengths of our secondary education programs at FHSU is that we have a partnership between the academic departments and the department of Teacher Education, which benefits students because it ensures their preparation in educational theory and practice is strong, as well as their preparation in the content area that they will teach. History Secondary Education majors are better prepared because we require more content in history and political science that most other programs, as well as additional courses in content areas that make out students more marketable.
