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 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.
