The University of Northern Iowa has the largest program for both social science and history majors in the state of Iowa. While attending UNI, you will be challenged by our outstanding faculty and given an opportunity to receive hands-on experience in our local classrooms and museums.

As a history or social science education major, you will have three field experiences in which you will explore, define and sharpen your skills as a future classroom teacher. Your teaching experience will be capped off with student teaching which can be done in Iowa, throughout the United States or overseas. Our program continues to be very strong as we meet the challenges of the new century in education.

We hope you will become a Panther and join us on the path to an exciting future!
