Why social science?
Social scientists share a common interest in observing, describing, and explaining social phenomena, including cultures, institutions, organizations, groups, and individuals. A major in Social Science is designed to serve students who desire a broader exposure to social science theory, epistemology, and application than is possible with a focus on one substantive field.
Please note: course work leading to teaching certification may be reconfigured for this area of study. Students considering teaching in this area should be in continuous contact with the chair of this program and the School of Education for a list of required courses. Students should also check each semester for possible changes in course work required of them as they work toward certification at SMU.
