Bachelor of Science, Secondary Social Science Education Four Year Plan  

The Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education (Social Sciences concentration) at Southeastern University equips students with the skills and knowledge needed to instill an understanding and interest in history, cultural shifts, and current events in the next generation. You’ll begin the program by building your exposure to relevant core curriculum with an in-depth study of history, government, economics, cultural anthropology, and other topics. You’ll then gain valuable hands-on training in local middle and high school classrooms, where you’ll observe experienced teachers, instruct students, and be mentored. Your degree will culminate in the completion of a semester-long student teaching internship, where you’ll plan and teach the curriculum as well as manage and assess learners.
