Through a blend of the social sciences, history, and humanities, you’ll learn to guide your students through a myriad of perspectives and social structures, and be able to adapt such lessons for the next generation of thinkers.  Perhaps most importantly, you’ll understand how to help your students discover how people relate to each other, how we interact as groups, and how we organize our thoughts, religions, and governments. With a foundation in social studies, your students will be able to understand the world around them, and their place in it.
