The Social Science major is for students interested in an interdisciplinary concentration in history, political science, geography, and economics. There is a Social Science with Minor in Education for students seeking a career in secondary education, which provides candidates with a very flexible degree for entering that job market for grades 6 to 12. Because 36 hours are required in history, students are also well qualified to seek a graduate degree in history. The Social Science major is also available for students who do not intend to teach but believe that an interdisciplinary approach will help them better understand history, political science, and the world in which they live. With 15 hours in political science, the social science major could consider the Master of Public Administration (MPA) degree. Students might also find social science a useful major for careers in government or journalism.
