The Social Sciences program is designed to prepare students to become Middle School or High School Social Studies teachers. This comprehensive major focuses on History, Political Science, Anthropology, Economics, Geography, and Psychology. In addition to fostering content competency, it allows students to develop their written and oral communication skills. It generally leads to a Bachelor of Science in Education and state licensure.
Recent graduates of the program are teaching in Nebraska, Wyoming, South Dakota, and Arizona, but the degree can take students to many places. Teaching is not the only option. Program alumni also pursue graduate study in various fields, and some have gone on to earn commissions in the US Armed Forces. The program also hosts a vibrant Social Sciences Club, the Native American Club, and the opportunity to participate in a study abroad experience in Cuba.
