Students may choose to concentrate in any three of the following teaching areas: economics, geography, government, history, psychology, and sociology. To ensure broad competence in the social sciences, students are also required to complete one course in each teaching area not chosen as the teaching area, for a total of 9 credit hours. There is one exception to this pattern: students who do not choose history as one of their teaching areas must complete two history courses and one course in each other teaching area not chosen, for a total of 12 credit hours. For a full description of the Social Science Education Program, see the Center for Social Science Education section of this Catalog.
