History teachers teach students about the various in-depth parts of history. They provide students with a broad exposure to historical events and time periods and include an abundance of dates and facts on a variety of types of history such as ancient, U.S., European, African, Asian, and world history. History teachers need at least a bachelor degree in education with a concentration on history or social science. Some history teachers have a previous history background and complete additional teacher training courses to meet the requirements of their state. Employment of all school teachers is expected to grow about as fast as average for all professions, increasing 12% from 2006 to 2016. Population growth and an increase of student enrollments will drive job growth.
