2019-2020 Undergraduate Catalog

Teaching Major in Social Studies (BA/BS)

99 credits

All students seeking to become candidates for licensure in Social Studies will, via course completion and performance assessment, demonstrate mastery of the subject matter in the individual disciplines: economics, geography, government, psychology, sociology, and historical perspectives (United States and world history). See department statements for course requirements.

Students will demonstrate that mastery as a result of intensive preparation in two or more disciplines, one of which must be historical perspectives. Students will complete 30 credits in historical perspectives to facilitate preparation in both United States and world history, complemented by preparation in one other discipline (15 credits in: economics, geography, government/political science, psychology, or sociology), and four other courses (12 credits), one from each of the four other disciplines, totaling 57 credits. Students are encouraged to pursue additional licensure in one or more of the other four disciplines. Teaching programs require additional courses in educational methods. The professional education courses are included in this listing.
