SUGGESTED SEMESTER SCHEDULE FOR SOCIAL STUDIES MAJOR, B.A.

The following is suggested for logical and effective scheduling but can be interpreted as flexible for meeting requirements and a student's particular needs. Students should meet with the Social Studies coordinator and advisor as early as possible in their planning.

Freshman - Sophomore

  • 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.
