The aim of the Social Science Program is directed towards the single subject Social Science 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. Some career paths students have gone into are public service for the State, law enforcement, school administrator, management, counseling, and personnel recruiter. Non-credential students need not complete the professional education program and elective courses may be taken to complete the 120 unit Bachelor of Arts degree
