School of Arts and Sciences
Overview

A social science major allows you to teach any course within social studies subjects in any 7-12 school in Nebraska, as well as in most other states. The major, also a teaching endorsement, is comprised of courses including sociology, economics, political science, history, geography and psychology. 

Students not seeking to be certified to teach in secondary schools with a social science major generally continue by enrolling in a graduate school program in their area of interest.

Refer to the Social Science Teaching Endorsement for additional information.

Learning Environment

The Chab Weyers Education and Hixson Lied Art Building provides new offices and classrooms for Doane's nationally recognized education and art programs. The new building is designed to inspire teaching and learning in a collaborative work environment. Color, texture, lighting and acoustics are used to create a comfortable and enriching setting for students, faculty and staff.

Ample student commons space will allow for a relaxing study atmosphere between classes and projects. Classrooms are designed with student needs in mind and offer exceptional space to create on your own timetable, work closely with Doane faculty, and learn in group settings with other students and visiting masters. Introductory class enrollment is generally less than 40 students with upper-division class sizes generally ranging between 5 and 25 students.
