The professional preparation program in social studies aims to prepare teachers with the skills necessary to create an informed citizenry with respect for diversity in a democratic society. The program emphasizes critical thinking about social studies curriculum frameworks and materials; curriculum development grounded in teaching for understanding; and sensitivity around controversial areas such as race relations, gender issues, war, peace, equality of economic and social opportunities, and global interdependence.
