Humanity throughout history

Are you fascinated with society and human behavior—both today and throughout history? Consider a Social Studies major at CUAA. This major is aimed at preparing students for a life of service as teachers; however, it is also extremely useful for those preparing for a law career or other leadership positions in the Church and the world.

Program Overview

As a CUAA Social Studies major, you’ll observe a wide range of social behavior—both past and present. From civic ideals to power and governance, you’ll learn important concepts that explain individual and human characteristics. Our Social Studies program will teach you to explain key concepts of economics, geography, and political science. Our students are also able to apply social and behavioral concepts such as social groups and institutions, culture and cultural diversity, and individual development and identity to current and past social behavior and public issues. Our aim is to help you improve your social and behavioral skills to become an effective servant leader.

What to Expect

The CUAA Social Studies major is based on curriculum that is focused on participation in society as productive Christian citizens. You’ll start by studying the foundations of learning to observe and analyze a wide range of social behavior. Understanding humans today means understanding where we came from, so you’ll also explore history, economics, geography, and political science. In order to put your knowledge into practice, your studies will also require participating in public life through discussion of public issues and civic involvement.
