Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by College

The Social Studies Minor prepares students in the interdisciplinary field of social studies in order to possibly become eligible for graduate work in Coastal Carolina University’s Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) with a Concentration in Social Studies (9-12) program. Since social studies teachers at the secondary level are asked to instruct across multiple disciplines, this minor reflects coursework in geography, history, U.S. government, and economics—the areas promoted by the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS)—as well as the social sciences as represented by anthropology, psychology, and sociology, also recognized by the NCSS. Students completing this minor train in social studies as an integrated study of the humanities and social sciences in the promotion of civic competence with a focus on disciplinary content. The minor requires 18 credit hours, complementing a wide range of majors, but specifically anthropology and geography, economics, history, and political science. It complements Coastal Carolina University’s Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) with a Concentration in Social Studies (9-12) program.
