In broad terms, the BEd(HIST) programme aims to cultivate students with professional ethics and a global perspective for teaching the subject of history in secondary schools. To achieve this aim, graduates of the programme are expected to:
- possess the relevant pedagogical and curriculum development skills as well as disciplinary knowledge with an emphasis on historical issues of modern times;
- possess critical thinking skills to solve problems in a logical and creative way;
- communicate and interact effectively with others in social and professional contexts; and
- demonstrate global awareness with high standard of morality.
Being a BEd(HIST) student is not only about gaining knowledge of a wide range of history topics, but also about being provided with opportunities to learn how to become an effective educator. Through sharing with professors and classmates, I have been able to develop key skills in the discipline of history such as forming rational arguments and expressing my own opinions through critical thinking. I believe the BEd(HIST) programme is playing a vital role in helping pave the way to reach my future goal of becoming a secondary school history teacher.
