Established in 1977, the department boasts a long tradition in producing teachers that are able to abide by the official curriculum set forth for the subject of history in middle and high schools, and who can teach comprehensive subjects on social studies.

To this end, in-depth knowledge on all fields of history (theory of history education, Korean history, Asian history, Western history), research methodology, and the theory and practice on history texts and teaching methods are covered in the curriculum.

In addition, a balanced acquisition of knowledge on the subject matter is accomplished through courses on related fields such as geography, political science and economics. Rather than rely on a teaching method of having the students memorize historical facts, future teachers are encouraged to develop ways to promote curiosity and study capabilities of middle and high school students through literature research, discussion or field trips.
