Major Advising and Licensure Advising


Students who anticipate completing the social studies major should meet with the social studies program director as early as possible. If you are also seeking Secondary Social Studies licensure, also see Undergraduate Education listings for required education courses. If you are seeking an Elementary License with a 5-8 social studies content specialty, please confer with the program director and see Undergraduate Education listings for further details.

Please Note: Those adding the 5-8 social studies concentration to their K-6 license must take HIST 1300: American History from 1607 to 1865 and either HIST 3000: Workshop in History.

Also Note: At least two history courses should be completed before taking HIST 3000. A topics course or world regions course is highly recommended.
