    OK, so I'm pretty sure (like 99%) that i want to do American Studies and history at Uni :yep: But to actually teach history at Secondary level do I need to take straight history. or can i specialise in America, and still do it? :confused:

    As long as you do 50 percent of your degree in History you should be ok.

    As starchild pointed out, the minimum requirement is a joint-honours degree in the subject you want to teach, though I do not think you will be that disadvantaged having done American Studies to be honest.
