Dr. Dague earned his Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in the fields of social studies education and educational psychology from North Carolina State University (Raleigh, North Carolina). During his time at N.C. State, Dr. Dague developed a desire to explore how intellectual spaces can be created using authentic educational practices that provide autonomy-support and empowerment opportunities for students in social studies courses.
Full-time, Dr. Dague serves as assistant professor of teacher and social studies education at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina. Prior to his work at The Citadel, Dr. Dague was as a high school history teacher at Jack Britt High School (Fayetteville, North Carolina) where he taught AP European History and AP World History; he also served as the head baseball coach during his last eight years at Jack Britt.

In maintaining his adjunct status at Campbell University, he continues to work with students who actively serve in the United States Army along with students who have come back to higher education in an effort to complete their respective degrees. Dr. Dague is a proud Campbell alumnus (M.Ed. ’09), so being able to come back and work for his alma mater has been one that has brought him incredible joy.
