EIU Program in Social Science Teaching

Academic Advising

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 (jadavis2@eiu.edu), Geography; Prof. Brian Mann (bmann@eiu.edu), History; Mr. John Morris (jsmorris@eiu.edu), Political Science; Dr. Bill Addison (weaddison@eiu.edu), Psychology; and Dr. Vernon Woodley (vawoodley@eiu.edu), 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 revised in 2016, and similar revisions to the SOS concentrations were made in 2017, so make sure to check your catalog year as you choose a checksheet below. SOS students are encouraged to check with advisors and Dr. Laughlin-Schultz prior to registering for classes.

Degree Checksheets

Sample Four Year Plans

You will get the most out of advising if you carefully review all the degree information on this website. Before you meet with your advisor it would also be good to review your degree checksheet and your own personal degree audit. You can run a degree audit in PAWS.  Log into PAWS and then click on STUDENT and RECORDS. Then, click DEGREE AUDIT REPORTING SYSTEM. Click RUN AUDIT on the right side of the screen, and then click on the link VIEW AUDIT. You should then see a blue clickable link with your major and option listed.
