If you want to teach social studies to junior high/middle or high school students, you must take courses in education and in various disciplines that fall under the area of social studies. The sociology focus area for teaching majors in social studies allows you to gain mastery of sociology by studying and applying contemporary sociological theory and research to social issues such as globalization, social inequality, diversity, family, religion, or population. Please see the sociology content area requirements document here for details.
For information on becoming a social studies teaching major please visit the History webpage here.
