Hi Emelia,

In my experience, colleges here and probably most places, have specific courses that fulfill the Social Studies requirements. MAYBE one or two of your anthropology classes would qualify to fulfill a class or two for the Social Studies concentration. I have a degree in psychology and took classes in child development, learning, and education psychology, but they wouldn't count them; it had to be courses from the education department. I basically retook the same content over again for a number of classes.

The best way to get an idea is to make appointments with advisors at local colleges. They will look at your transcripts and give you an idea of what you'd need to take for different teaching areas you're interested in. No college here has charged me to see an advisor, so you should be able to do that without needing money or being obligated to sign up there.

Hope this helps...
