Master of Arts in Social Studies

Professional Development - Further Education

The NIE’s Master of Arts in Social Studies is designed to prepare teachers and other professionals to teach and work in a diverse and rapidly changing technological society. 


Social studies plays an important role in the global information society and knowledge-based economy in which new technologies, multimedia, and multi-modal texts are part and parcel of transnational flows of people, goods, and ideas. 


The M.A. in Social Studies program supports teachers and other professionals by providing cross-disciplinary perspectives in the social studies, social science, and humanities disciplines. 


The program encourages participants to explore new, innovative, and alternative ways to help students of all ages learn subject matter content in the humanities and social sciences, such as inquiry-based learning and e-learning.
