M.Ed. in Social Science Education

The M.Ed. in Social Science Education program is designed for those teaching at the secondary or college level in the field of social science, and this coursework is crafted to integrate content and enhance teaching strategies. The coursework explores the range of issues related to human interaction and learning within a societal context, exploring sociology, psychology, human development, and human relationships. Utilizing evidence-based research, learners investigate historical contexts, theories, standards, and frameworks which have shaped current understanding of human engagement as a foundation for creating learning environments, assessment options, and developing intellectual processes for lifelong learning. The program pursues ways information is designed, displayed, and delivered to impact behavior from various perspectives. By generating critical analysis skills, learners examine the rationale and emergent patterns beneath issues, tracing the cause and effect of cognitive, emotional, social, and physical elements to blend creativity with the practical. Attention is given to strategies to support personal change in thinking, reasoning, and decision making as they influence content, community, and cultural aspects of society.
