  • Geography and History constitute the "matrix" of Social Studies and students should complete required core courses in these subjects first.
  • Complete Liberal Education requirements

Junior-Senior

  • Complete remaining core course requirements and courses for area of emphasis.
  • Complete Professional Education courses
  • Students pursuing the B.S. Teacher Licensure in Social Studies should complete GEOG 3460 no sooner than their junior year, preferably just prior to their student teaching.
