As a student in the Social Studies Education program, you will have a program of study that combines the liberal arts core, your liberal arts major, and your education courses.  You will complete a major in one of the social science areas: African American Studies (with a social science emphasis), American Studies, anthropology, economics, geography (with a non-natural science/non-physical geography emphasis), history, international relations, political science, policy studies, or sociology.

If you are entering SU with no college credit, a typical schedule might include:

  • a beginning course in your chosen major
  • a natural science course for your liberal arts core
  • mathematics (MAT 121 or MAT 122; level determined by placement test)
  • a foreign language course (if not satisfied in high school studies)
  • a humanities course for your liberal arts core or a second social science
  • WRT 105, or the alternative CAS 100 (consult iPlan for information)
  • First-year Forum in the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS 101)
  • First-year Forum in the School of Education (EDU 101)
