SUBSTANTIVE CHANGE

History/Social Science Subject Matter Program Based on a History Major
The new History/Social Science Subject Matter Program is designed to provide an academic major to students planning to be California public school teachers in Social Science; and to fulfill their subject matter requirements on the road to their credential in Social Science.

The old History/Social Science program has been in existence since the mid-1990s; it has served as a successful alternative to the Social Science Subject Matter Program (major in Social Science) for CSUS students who want to major in History. In response to state legislation over the past several years and the Issuing of new Single Subject Matter Standards by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing, the University is now required to devise a new Social Science Subject Matter Program. We have opted to preserve the old structure, whereby students may choose between two options – one with a major in Social Science and the other with a major in History. This proposal is for the History Option only.

In short, the Department of History is submitting this revised program because it is required by state law to do so.

Please consult the attached sheet for a detailed description of the proposal and a comparison with the current program. In all cases, changes from the former program are motivated by changes in the Subject Matter Standards imposed by the CTC on us.

The Committee responsible for the drafting of the new program consisted of Richard Kornweibel, Henry Chambers, Charles Postel, and Aaron Cohen, all from the Department of History. They consulted extensively with Tim Fong, Coordinator of the Social Science Program, and with representatives of other departments participating in the History/Social Science Program – Government, Geography, Economics, Humanities and Religious Studies, and a few others. All these departments have approved their participation in this program.

The fiscal impact of the new program will be minimal. There are slightly fewer History units (36 instead of 39), and a three unit increase in the number of Economics units (the extra three units are lower division and thus will usually be taken in community colleges). The HRS Department may have to schedule an extra section of HRS 140 every couple of semesters since that course will now be required. The College of Education will have to make adjustments to accommodate the extra enrollment appearing in the EDBM 170, which is now required. The one unit SS 19x (portfolio course) will be scheduled in the College of Social Science and Interdisciplinary Studies.

The Department of History will have to make small internal adjustments. It has already submitted proposals for two new courses – History 133 (20th Century World History) and History 191 (Seminar in Historical Interpretation and Analysis), which would be offered once or twice a year. It will have to schedule an extra section of History 100, and perhaps one less section per year of History 197. It will need to decrease the number of History 192s and 193s by about one per year.
