The M.A. in Social Science has two options available to choose from:

The General Social Science option is a flexible interdisciplinary program which allows students to tailor a program to their specific academic or career goals, drawing on curricula from departments in the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences, as well as history, and other university programs. While possibilities are varied, some examples include focusing on student services administration, public policy evaluation, and history/government/world affairs.

The Social Science Education Option is designed primarily for primary and secondary teachers. It expands student knowledge of history, social science and international studies subject matter, in order to broaden their teaching methodology and develop their leadership abilities.
