Please see catalog section on applying for TEP Admission processes and other program requirements for additional information. The Interdisciplinary Social Science Major enables teachers to teach multiple subjects in secondary schools. The UMW Department of Education strongly recommends that candidates seek licensure in more than one subject area (by combining one teaching major with at least one other teaching major or minor) to increase their hiring options. The Modern History Major is recommended. A Coaching Option is also available with any teaching major, but does not lead to licensure.
