if your going to teach history at a high school, i know you need to major in history and one other subject like English, or psychology, math… ect, whatever as long as you have two majors, then you have to go to teachers college. after that you have to substitute for a few years before you can actually have a position because there arent too many available.

So, you enjoy history and would like to teach that subject but don’t know how to go about becoming a history teacher? The first thing to do is decide where you would like to teach history. High school? College?

The High School Option
For high school, first check out where history fits in the curriculum. In many places history has been merged into the social science curriculum so you will have to be prepared to teach other social studies courses intermixed with history. You will need a bachelor’s degree with a major or minor in history or some social science combination. If you already have a bachelor’s degree you will more than likely only have to take the additional history courses and teacher training courses in order to become certified.

The College Option
If your option is college you will generally need a master’s or, preferably a PhD degree in history before being considered. One option is to work in another field and teach history part-time as an adjunct instructor.
