About the Program
What can I do with a major in Social Science Teaching?
Teach history, psychology, sociology, economics, government, and geography in IL schools—our majors (History with Teacher Licensure or Social Science Teaching) are licensed to teach all social sciences!
Continue on to graduate work in any of the social sciences.
The content knowledge, critical thinking, writing, and analytical skills of this major prepare you for a host of professional options beyond the high school classroom, whether in graduate school or a host of varied careers.
Pursue work as an advertising executive, advocate, analyst, archivist … or as a broadcaster, campaign worker, consultant, congressional aide, editor, foreign service officer, or foundation staffer … or as an information specialist, intelligence agent, journalist, legal assistant, lobbyist, personnel manager, public relations staffer, or researcher—the list goes on and on!
