Broad Field Social Studies

TYPE: Major
DEGREE: B.A./B.S.
DEPARTMENT: Department of Education

LOCATION: On-Campus

The Broad Field Social Studies major prepares students to teach in their area of concentration and to teach "fusion" courses. Fusion courses are defined as those that integrate several social studies disciplines and require composite preparation in social studies. Civics, social problems, American problems, area studies, and contemporary issues are examples of fusion courses.

A Broad Field Social Studies Education major leads to licensure in the State of Wisconsin and would allow one to teach classes like civics, world history, economics and other social studies classes. Students choose a concentration in either Political Science or History to teach those subjects at the 11th or 12th grades and advanced placement (AP) courses. Certification for licensure requires completion of the Instruction minor/required teacher certification coursework and one semester of student teaching.
