Become an elementary school teacher through the American studies education major. Students start by immersing themselves in American studies classes, where they acquire an understanding of American thought, institutions, and culture, utilizing a historical and cultural approach. They also will develop important critical-thinking skills in analysis, problem-solving, research, writing, and evaluation, which allows them to build a strong foundation for teaching in the elementary school or special education setting.
