Online Master of Arts in teaching college social sciences

You’ve attended lectures on human social behavior and participated in study groups to master the science of how people behave, think and feel. Now, it’s time for you to share your knowledge and expertise to shape the minds of future generations. 

SFA is here to help. 

We recognize the need for trailblazing psychology and/or sociology educators, and we’ve responded by offering our unique Master of Arts in teaching college social sciences. Our program is dedicated to advancing the study of psychology and sociology by guiding graduate students to teach the disciplines to college and dual-credit high school students effectively.

The best part: you can finish this flexible, completely online program wherever you’re most comfortable. 

Preparing social science educators of tomorrow

Our MA in teaching college social sciences program is meticulously designed to prepare students to teach both psychology and sociology undergraduate courses that are commonly offered at the university, community college and dual-credit levels. By completing the program, you will improve your marketability in higher education, have more credentials and increase your yearly income. 

Instead of a thesis, you will engage in a capstone teaching seminar course to help develop innovative and effective teaching skills based on scholarship of teaching and learning research. 

Excellence: Certified

This innovative, two- to- three-year, 36-hour program comprises two stackable online graduate certificates in teaching college psychology and teaching college sociology. Both certificates require a minimum of 18 graduate semester credit hours.
