Psychology Major with Social Studies High School Teaching Licensure

Students majoring in psychology may elect to pursue teacher licensure in Social Studies. Completion of teacher licensure will enable one who wishes to teach Social Studies curricula in the secondary schools to gain the background for teaching psychology courses as well. See the requirements for completion of Teacher Licensure in Social Studies. The University, College, and departmental major requirements are the same as for any other psychology major. Additional semester hours may be required for completion of the degree.

Those intending to gain teacher licensure are encouraged to choose electives in Sociology, Philosophy, Religious Studies, or Anthropology that address human behavior and experiences from complementary or, perhaps, alternative perspectives.
