Undergraduate Program

The Social Science major is administered by the Department of History in collaboration with the Social Science Program Oversight Committee. The major is an interdisciplinary program offering both Teaching (45 semester hours) and Non-Teaching (51 semester hours) options as part of either a Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degree. Students wishing to be licensed to teach history, political science, geography or economics must select the Teaching option. The Non-Teaching option is only for students who were enrolled previously in the Social Science Teaching Options. Enrollment in the Social Science Non-Teaching Option is contingent upon students having at least junior standing and having already completed a minimum of 30 Radford University credit hours as a Social Science Teaching Option Major.  This option provides a basic background for future graduate work in any of the social science areas and a well-rounded liberal education for careers in business, government and other similar fields.
