A minor in social science with an emphasis in historical perspectives is designed specifically to meet the needs of the prospective elementary or junior high/middle school teacher. This minor may be used only in combination with a major of Elementary Education or Special Education. This minor may not be used in combination with a teaching major at the secondary education level (or Early Childhood, or a non-teaching major). This minor will not lead to licensure in social sciences for secondary education. Certification for high school teachers in any of the social sciences requires completion of the Social Science Secondary Education Major degree.
