Courses Offered


Secondary Teaching Credential in Social Sciences

The 63-unit Subject Matter Program (SMP) in Social Sciences may be completed while earning a bachelor's degree in any area of study. Undergraduate students beginning their SMP should be advised, however, that a bachelor's degree is recommended in economics, geography, history, or political science for those intending to teach secondary social studies. These areas of study are recommended because they most closely parallel the social sciences requirements.
