The Social Studies Program prepares students with instruction in the many disciplines that make up the world of "social studies." Students in this program take a solid foundation of liberal arts courses in history with supporting courses in anthropology, economics, geography, political science, and sociology. Students also complete coursework in educational theory and practice. Students in Social Studies also complete student teaching hours as part of their work with the College of Education and Human Services.
We offer a Social Studies degree with a Secondary Education Certification, and we are proud to partner with the College of Education and Human Services in helping to train future social studies educators for the Commonwealth of Kentucky and beyond.

The Department of History and Geography offers an amazing array of classes focused on the diverse areas of our world. In my role as the Global Programs Intern at the World Affairs Council of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, I use knowledge I gained from the the department's courses to support my understanding of the current political atmosphere and how it affects our region. Through my class work as a history major and my experience with the Celebration of Undergraduate Research, where I studied Eastern and Western ideologies and cultures using evolutionary theories, I have a better understanding of the different culture groups that reside in Cincinnati, how to connect Cincinnati to the global community, and how to create classrooms that better prepare area students for an increasingly global region and world.
