TEACHING MAJOR IN SOCIAL STUDIES, 57-66 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 three disciplines. Students who choose historical perspectives as an area will complete 27 hours to facilitate preparation in both United States and world history, complemented by preparation in two other disciplines (15 hours each), and three other courses (9 hours), one from each of the three other disciplines, totaling 66 hours. Students who do not choose historical perspectives as an area will complete preparations in three other disciplines (15 hours each), and three other courses (9 hours) in each of the three remaining disciplines, plus a course in world cultures (ANTH 101), totaling 57 hours.
