California State University, San Bernardino
Social Sciences - Credential Track B.A.

B.A. in Social Sciences - Credential Track: Students who wish to teach social science subjects in California`s secondary schools will have to be classified as "highly qualified" teachers as required by federal No Child Left Behind guidelines. In order to meet this qualification they will have to pass the California Subject Examination for Teachers (CSET), which encompasses knowledge and understanding primarily of history, but also geography, economics, and political science. Passing this exam means that the prospective teacher is considered to be "highly qualified" in each of these four subject areas. One effective way to be prepared to pass the exam is to complete the B.A. in Social Sciences, Credential Track. The core discipline in the program is history, as that is the most widely taught social science subject in secondary schools. In addition to this concentration, students have options in the other three disciplines of geography, economics, or political science. Any of these options would add 32-37 units to the 99-100 units needed for the core history program.
