[picture]Social Studies
The Program in Social Studies combines history and the social sciences for purposes of instruction. The program particularly emphasizes the historical development of the field, the selection, and organization of subject matter, and analysis of instructional materials for students of diverse backgrounds in both urban and suburban school settings. Social studies teachers must be schooled in subject matter, practiced in the arts of pedagogy, attuned to the needs of students, and alive to the interplay of theory and practice.

The program prepares students for professional positions in schools, colleges, universities, and allied institutions. Our faculty's strengths in history and social education, as well as pedagogy, are well suited to that purpose. These strengths, along with the full resources of Teachers College and Columbia University's Graduate School of Arts and Sciences are, of course, available to every student.
