What Is Taught in 12th Grade Social Studies?

For college admissions in the U.S., 3 years of high school credits are required in social studies. As history forms a big part of social studies in high school, if your child has already completed the required credits, the history course that your child wants to opt for in the 12th grade largely depends on you and your child. However, if your child still hasn’t opted for either U.S. History or World History, then at least one of them should be added to the 12th grade social studies credit. If both the courses/credits are complete, then Let’s Read English recommends adding one semester of U.S. Government course with a semester of Economics elective to complete the 12th grade social studies credit.
