The program in Social Studies is the integrated study of the social sciences which prepares students to teach the study of people and their economic, social, and political institutions in their historical and geographic context. Social Studies provides a coordinated, systematic study drawing upon the disciplines of economics, geography, history, and political science, as well as other social sciences, and appropriate content from the humanities, mathematics, and natural sciences. The primary purpose of Social Studies is to help people develop the ability to make informed and reasoned decisions for the public good as citizens of a culturally diverse, democratic society in an interdependent world.
