Courses for Concentration Credit

In addition to the above courses, all courses taken in departments with which Social Studies shares faculty (anthropology, economics, government, history, and sociology) as well as general education courses in ethical reasoning, Societies of the World, or US in the World will be counted toward concentration credit or, “conc’d” unless a student successfully petitions to have a course “unconc’d” for use in a secondary field.  All courses taken for Social Studies credit must be taken for a letter grade.
