Social Studies Education
Our undergraduate and graduate programs deepen students' comprehension of the social sciences and history, while highlighting how to teach global connections, constitutional history, historical thinking and the significance of diversity in the United States and worldwide. We urge you to learn more about our faculty and featured alumni. Faculty members explain their research specializations and how they teach. Featured alumni of the program tell of their experiences with the Undergraduate, Master of Arts, and PhD programs in social studies education.
