It is designed to serve both as a major for the bachelor's degree and to provide subject matter preparation for the Single Subject Teacher Credential in Social Science approved by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC)
Students should seek advising every semester until they graduate for efficient completion of the program because the Social Science program involves work in several departments and there are special rules that overlap with general education
The aim of the Social Science Program is directed toward the teacher credential, however, the program also provides an opportunity for students to build on the foundation of their general education and become familiar with several areas in the Social Sciences. Non-credential students need not complete the professional education program and elective courses may be taken to complete the 124-unit Bachelor of Arts degree
