About Anthropology/Social Studies

Jointly offered by the Department of Anthropology (College of Humanities and Social Sciences), and the Department of Secondary Education  (Woodring College of Education).

To receive a recommendation for state of Washington certification, students must complete the “teacher certification” program, including the content methods course SEC 426, offered by the Department of Secondary Education, as a part of the undergraduate Bachelor of Arts degree, or as a post-baccalaureate program, or as a part of the Master’s in Teaching degree. See the Secondary Education section of the catalog for program admission, completion, and teacher certification requirements.

Completion of this combined major leads to an endorsement in social studies. Courses required for a state teaching endorsement must be completed with a grade of C.

Grade Requirements

A grade of C (2.0) or better is required for courses in the elementary education professional program and all courses required for the endorsement.
