U.S. History Dual Credit Teaching Certificate

This program prepares you to teach college-level U.S. History survey courses by exposing you to a greater depth of content than what is offered at the undergraduate level. To be qualified to teach dual credit courses in any content area, the Higher Learning Commission also requires teachers to have a master's degree. Students can choose to complete the Master of Arts in History or the Master of Arts in Curriculum & Instruction program along with the dual credit curriculum. 


This program requires four 4.5 credit-hour courses, which are evenly divided between pre- and post-Civil War content.

The following courses were offered in Summer 2017 and during the 2017-18 academic year:

  • Nineteenth-Century America (Summer 2017 – accelerated format)
  • Modern and Contemporary American Politics (Summer 2017 – accelerated format)
  • Readings in US History, 1877-1945 (Semester I, 2017-18)
  • Civil War and Reconstruction (Semester II, 2017-18)

Course format

Courses typically meet face-to-face in the evenings but will also be offered in a hybrid format during UIndy’s summer sessions, with condensed seat-time including intensive introductory and concluding experiences.


Tuition for this program for the 2017-18 academic year is $470 per credit hour and is applicable to both face-to-face and online courses. Get information about financial aid for graduate students ►
