Social studies education majors develop skills and knowledge in areas such as history, geography, government, sociology, and economics. You will be able to apply what you learn through methods of teaching and learning with children from 5th through 12th grades. You will be in the field early during your studies and will be able to start learning in actual community classrooms. This major fully equips you to teach your own class of diverse students in any urban, suburban, or rural school.
Skills and abilities this major develops include: cultural competency, teaching, problem solving, lesson planning, and inclusivity (IUPUI School of Education, 2017).
