TEACHING MAJOR IN SOCIAL STUDIES, 54 hours
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. They 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 27 hours in historical perspectives to facilitate preparation in both United States and world history, complemented by preparation in one other discipline (15 hours), and four other courses (12 hours), one from each of the four other disciplines, totaling 54 hours. Students are encouraged to pursue additional licensure in one or more of the other four disciplines.
See departments for required courses in areas of concentration. The following courses are required for disciplines that are not the student's areas of concentration (the four other courses described above):
