Social Science (BA)

Because the requirements of the Social Science Program are fairly precisely laid down by certifying bodies there may be less overall choice within the major as outlined; however, it is to be expected that students choosing a teaching career in social studies would find their interests lie along the lines of the requirements. For more information regarding this program, please contact the chair of any of the departments included in this major or a co-chair of the School of Education.

The Social Science major will consist of a minimum of 56 hours from history and the social sciences. Transfer students majoring in Social Science must take a minimum of 40% of the coursework required for the major at Benedictine College.
