The Social Science degree with a minor in Education is 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 degree 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 degree could consider the Master of Public Administration (MPA) degree. Students might also find social science a useful degree for careers in government or journalism.
