General Studies/Transfer Studies

Secondary Education Social Studies

Certificate of Applied Science • 63 Credit Hours

The General Studies/Transfer Studies Associate of Arts degree with a concentration in Social Studies Education serves as a foundation for continued studies in secondary education, grades 5-Adult at a four-year institution.

Learn skills in history, the humanities, the social sciences, and education.

The AA degree can establish the foundation for a lifetime of continual learning and serve as a framework for a productive professional and personal life. This degree gives emphasis to practical skills in communication and critical thinking, which may lead to employment such as a paraprofessional in education; however, the goal of this program is successful transfer with junior status to an upper division baccalaureate degree program in secondary education.

Students planning to major in History can also follow this pathway for a seamless transfer to a four-year college or university.

Admission Requirements

The college adheres to an open admission policy which means applications with a high school diploma or GED are eligible for admission. Applicants with neither a high school diploma nor GED may be admitted on a conditional basis.
