Students who were declared SSI majors before December 20, 2003, are welcome to continue their progress in the program and will continue to be awarded degrees in SSI. No student may declare the SSI major after that date.

The description and requirements of the SSI major are in the 2003 Undergraduate Bulletin (but note that the contact information listed there—director, office, and phone—are no longer valid).

The courses previously offered as SSI are now offered as Child and Family Studies (CFS), Social Studies Education (SSE), and Asian and Asian-American Studies (AAS). They may all still be counted as SSI for the purpose of completion of the SSI major.

The Social Studies Teacher Education Program

Many SSI majors are also enrolled in the Social Studies Teacher Education Program, leading to New York State Teacher Certification. The two programs are separate; you can be an SSI major without being in the teacher education track, or you can be in the Social Studies Teacher Education Program while majoring in Africana Studies, Anthropology, Economics, History, Political Science, or Sociology. For information about Social Studies Teacher Education, see the web site http://www.sunysb.edu/history/Socialstudies/ or contact Professor Larry Frohman, 632-7686, lawrence.frohman@sunysb.edu.
