Mission of Social Science

The Social Science major is an interdisciplinary program that includes the departments of AnthropologyEconomicsEthnic StudiesGeographyGovernmentHistory, and Sociology

The major provides an opportunity for students to build on the foundation of their general education and become familiar with several areas in the Social Sciences. A Social Science major is excellent background for advanced graduate studies and professional careers

The Social Science program is designed to serve as a major for the bachelor's degree and to provide subject matter preparation for students who intend to become Middle and High School Social Science teachers. To qualify for a teaching credential, candidates must complete an approved Professional Education Program and other requirements as specified by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC)

NOTE: The Social Science program involves course work in several departments. As a result, special rules on overlapping with general education apply to the program and regularly scheduled meetings with an advisor are essential to the efficient completion of the program.
