Wayne State University

Social Studies Education

The goal of Social Studies Education at Wayne State University in Detroit is to train K - 12 teachers to construct activities to help their students better understand their world, country, region, state and community and their possible roles in it as citizens. 

As students learn about the various areas of Social Studies they may not grow up to have a job as a historian or as an economist, but they will learn more about themselves, others, can become informed citizens and more interesting persons.
