Social Studies (K-14)

Social Studies (K-14) is to develop a concrete understanding of the integration of the Social Studies curriculum with Project-Based Learning while invigorating the teaching of Social Studies professionals and energizing students to do historical work that will demonstrate the power of critical thinking in a globalizing world.

The Social Studies concentration is fully online.
