All students in social science teaching have two homes: their disciplinary department (Geography, History, Political Science, Psychology, or Sociology-Anthropology) and the social science teaching program. Students are advised within their disciplinary department by specialists in their major field: Dr. Jim Davis (email@example.com), Geography; Mr. John Morris (firstname.lastname@example.org), Political Science; Dr. Bill Addison (email@example.com), Psychology; and Dr. Vernon Woodley (firstname.lastname@example.org), Sociology. All social science teaching majors are also welcome to meet with Dr. Bonnie Laughlin-Schultz, coordinator of social science teaching.
Below are major checksheets, four year plans, and a number of other resources that majors will find useful. IMPORTANT NOTE: The History with Teacher Licensure major was just revised, and similar revisions to the SOS concentrations will be put into place in fall 2016, so make sure to check your catalog year. SOS students are encouraged to check with advisors and Dr. Laughlin-Schultz prior to registering for classes.
