What Do Colleges Want for Social Studies?

Social studies is a term used to describe the broad study of the various fields which involve past and current human behavior and interactions. Usually colleges will specify what type of Social Studies they want high schools to cover. Most often colleges will say they want American History, American Government, World History and Economics. Sometimes they will specify other courses as well, but this is the most common list. There are many other subjects that are considered Social Studies, though. They include Psychology, Sociology, Geography, and a wide variety of other history courses. One of my sons was very interested in Russian History, so he studied that "for fun." My other son loves Economics, so he spent one year studying microeconomics, and one year studying macroeconomics. Like other subject areas, it's most effective when you follow the interests of your child.

Dear Sharon,
My blog post today listed all the titles we used for basic economics. My son Alex studied economics intensely from the time he was 11, and so we used many MANY books when he was in high school. Each year we gave him a full high school credit for his work: economics, microeconomics, and macroeconomics. The last year of high school he was in community college, so we didn't have homeschool courses.
I hope that helps!
Blessings,
Lee
