Why should I earn a social science with a teaching licensure degree?
Teach a subject that can shape students' understanding of the whole world and their place in it. Make a global impact.
Social science/studies is a broad field, allowing you to focus in on a favorite area of interest or cover broad strokes in many topics.
Though challenging, teaching in a classroom setting will mean summers off and built-in vacations, allowing for more work-life balance.
