Admission to Teacher Licensure Programs

Students in the SOCSC Education major must achieve an overall SXU grade-point average of 3.0 and complete all major courses, all general education courses, and all professional education courses with a minimum grade of C to be admitted to student teaching. All students who wish to complete a Teacher Education Program for licensure, including clinical practice/student teaching at SXU must be officially admitted to the Education Department as a teacher education candidate. A teacher education program is a four-benchmark process. It starts when a student is admitted to the University and completes pre-candidacy requirements, continues through admission to the Education Department as an Education candidate and admission to clinical practice/student teaching, exit from clinical practice/student teaching and finally program completion (licensure). Additional information is found on the Illinois State Board of Education website.

Additional Information

The social sciences education (SOCSC) major is designed for students seeking Illinois secondary licensure in the area of social sciences with a disciplinary specialization in history. It satisfies the Illinois Content Area Standards and requirements. It is ideal for students who intend to teach history and other social sciences in Illinois public high schools.

Please refer to the Secondary Education Program and the History and Social Science section of the SXU Academic Catalog for any additional information.
