Social Studies Major: Overview

Library study

The Social Studies major, leading to a Bachelor of Arts (B. A.) degree, prepares students to teach social studies in middle and secondary schools. It is designed as a State of Hawai’i Department of Education (D.O.E.) approved content area, and may be used by students seeking a State of Hawai’i license to teach in secondary schools. This license is earned within the Master of Education (M.Ed.) degree program. Please consult your advisor. In addition to this approved content area, students must complete additional licensing courses in Education, which may be applied toward the M.Ed. degree.
