About CHE

The Center for History Education (CHE) at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County seeks to strengthen and invigorate the teaching of history in Maryland schools through innovative professional development programs and resources for elementary, middle and high school educators.

Our graduate courses and summer institutes assist K–12 educators in enriching their history curriculum. Courses and seminars in U.S. and World History education incorporate rigorous content, proven teaching methods, technology and research experiences. In working with teams of master teachers, historians and other history professionals, participants increase their own content knowledge and develop new instructional materials for their students.
