B.S.E. graduates who earn their teaching license become certified to teach U.S. History, World History, Arkansas History, African-American History, American Government, World Geography, Economics, Sociology, and Psychology. The program includes a semester-long teaching internship in the secondary schools under the supervision of the B.S.E. program director.
