About

The History Department's Bachelor of Arts in History and Social Science Education (HSSE) at University of Southern California is designed to emphasize those courses in its curriculum that will be of most use to a teacher of social studies.

Overview

The American Historial Association and other organizations have drawn recent attention to the critical importance of attracting talented undergraduates into high school and middle school teaching. It is an occupation particularly suited to those who want their future profession to present an intellectual challenge and an opportunity to make a difference in society.The History and Social Science Education program is offered at University of Southern California.

All of the courses are drawn from the regular curriculum in history, economics, and political science, providing a major which will prepare students for a profession in teaching while obtaining a strong liberal arts background. The required capstone seminar has been created specifically for the major and focuses on the requisite skills for teaching in a secondary school environment.
