Teaching Social Studies B.A.A.

College of Education & Human Service Professions (DCEH) 48UGR Education & Human Service Pro 245 - Bachelor of Applied Arts

Program description

The Bachelors of Applied Arts (B.A.A.) in Teaching Social Studies prepares students to teach grades 5 through 12. The major aligns with the Minnesota Professional Educators Licensing and Standards Board (PELSB) standards for Social Studies in grades 5 - 12 in Minnesota. Teaching Social Studies is an interdisciplinary major that requires lower-division coursework in each of seven areas: Anthropology, Economics, Geography, History, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology. Students then select one of eight discipline-based sub-plan specializations and complete upper-division coursework in that discipline: Anthropology, Economics, Geography, History, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, or Women's Studies. Students complete professional preparation coursework in education.

Students should utilize a What-if APAS as the official tool to see all requirements for degree completion. Due to the complexity of the admission to the blocks process, students are strongly encouraged to meet with their assigned advisor on a regular basis to establish a plan for degree completion.
