B.S.Ed. in Social Studies Education Economics Track

The B.S. in Social Studies Education leads to teaching certification for social studies in Pennsylvania junior high and high schools. Although graduates will be certified to teach all social sciences, they must choose to concentrate in one particular field.

Students choosing the economics track must complete ECON 121, ECON 122, and at least five upper-level economics courses, including three courses chosen from specific groups. They must also complete a series of other social science courses, as well as the College of Education’s core curriculum, including a semester of student teaching. The program is administered through the College of Education and Educational Technology.
