Social Studies (9-12) Education

Social Studies (9-12) Education, B.S.

Chowan University offers a specialized curriculum for students preparing to teach Social Studies in 9th through 12th-grade classes. Social Studies Education students will learn:

  • Geography skills
  • Characteristics of past and present societies
  • Issues and problems that have persisted throughout history
  • Social, political, and economic institutions in societies
  • Political, economic, social, and psychological behavior of people
  • Problem-solving, decision-making, planning, and participation skills
  • Constructive attitudes toward diversity, change, conflict, and uncertainty

The department boosted my maturity level from that of a high school kid to that of a young adult capable of conquering all of the challenges that life will inevitably throw your way. Constantly being around like-minded scholars only bettered and sharpened my mind. The History Department gifted me with professors who pushed me and supported me and with classmates that I will be friends with for life.
