Social Science Education

Interdisciplinary Studies in Social Science Education is a unique program that allows students that are interested in teaching multiple subjects within social studies to become certified to do so. This program works in conjunction with the College of Education and requires secondary admission to the College of Education. Upon acceptance, students will complete student teaching experiences and complete teacher education coursework that will align with their core major coursework in the College of Social Science. 

Typically, students will apply to the College of Education during their sophomore year at MSU. There are separate application requirements required by the College of Education that you can find on the College of Education's website

For more information on the courses that are required for this program, please see the Social Science Education Degree Checklist!
